Bee Gees star Robin Gibb is embroiled in a battle with both colon and liver cancer but he still took time to shoot down reports he's knocking on heaven's door and to reveal his chemo has been successful.
His spokesperson revealed last week that the singer is undergoing chemotherapy sessions. Now Gibb is speaking. He told Mail on Sunday the following: "For more than 18 months, I had lived with an inflammation of the colon; then I was diagnosed with colon cancer, which spread to the liver. I have undergone chemotherapy, however, and the results, to quote my doctor, have been 'spectacular.' It's taken a toll but the strange thing is that I've never felt seriously ill." That's good news. It's not knocking him out of commission, as chemo often does or can.
He also said, "There have been many false claims around, which I’d like to dispel. I am not and have never been at death's door. Nor do I have a team of alternative doctors, although I’m not averse to healthy remedies. I feel they can go together with conventional medicine. I do eat health foods and drink herbal teas made for me by Dwina, my wife."
Glad to hear it Robin!
