Ε άντε γαμήσου με την κωλοαρρώστια!!! Έλεος πια!!!
Από fb Vivian Campbell:
I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of ?the cough that wouldn?t quit?. Otherwise, how would I have known? After several months of trying every inhaler known to man, my doctor finally had me X-rayed. A further CAT scan revealed that enlarged lymph nodes were doing wrestling manoeuvres on my windpipe ? hence the cough. What was causing the enlarged lymph nodes, however, was yet to be determined, so I underwent a surgical biopsy on March 11th, the first day of Leppard rehearsals for our Viva Las Vegas shows. Obviously, I didn?t make it to rehearsal that day, but it?s okay; I know the songs by now...
My diagnosis was Hodgkin's Lymphoma and 6 months of chemotherapy is the prescribed treatment. I?m about 2 months in and feeling rather spiffy, all things considered. Hodgkin's has an over 80% cure rate, so by my reckoning, if you?re going to have a cancer, Hodgie?s is the one to have!
The reason I?m sharing this with you is because, despite cancer and chemo, me and my new aerodynamic hairstyle (read: no hair) are going on tour this summer with the band and I don?t want anyone to be so shocked by my new look that they ask for a refund. Simple economics, really.
My family, friends and bandmates have all been extremely supportive through this and I look forward to a summer full of shows with both Def Leppard in June/July and the debut of Last In Line this August.
Πραγματικά, δεν είναι δυνατόν οι μισές ενημερώσεις που γίνονται να είναι για καρκίνο! Δεν το χωράει ο νους μου!
