In September 2019, Mathison made a surprise announcement to his fans via Instagram. He shared a family picture, and in the caption, revealed that he had a health situation that he wanted to share with his fans.
Continuing, he solicited for their help, revealing that he had a tumor in his right kidney that was consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma, also called Kidney Cancer. He also wrote:
"...They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas..."
