He’s been battling illness for some time, and now Casey Kasem is receiving medical care at a facility in the State of Washington.

Daughter Kerri Kasem’s spokesperson told press the legendary 82-year-old deejay was rushed to the hospital via ambulance on Sunday afternoon (June 1) and Kerri was by his side.

On Friday (May 30), Miss Kasem told a judge her father is suffering from lung and bladder infections in addition to bedsores and dementia.

Kerri has been fighting with stepmother Jean Kasem over Casey’s care and the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office has ruled that Mr. Kasem has received adequate medical attention thus far.
