Robin Gibb has been diagnosed with liver cancer, but the singer is “on the road to recovery” he writes in a new blog post.
On Monday, SheKnows reported the sad news that legendary Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb is suffering from liver cancer. Now the ’70s icon is speaking out for himself, thanking fans for their support and saying he is already on the mend.
In a blog post on his website, Gibb wrote, “I wish to thank my family, friends and fans and the many thousands of people who do not know me but have enjoyed Bee Gees music and have wished me well. I am very touched by your love, kindness and support.”
“This concern from people all over the world has demonstrated the depth of feeling and love that the Bee Gees have achieved over the years. It is humbling and I take your prayers and good wishes for my health very seriously.”
“I have been very unwell and am now on the road to recovery, and your prayers and wishes are a great tonic to me. I believe because of you I will get well and my deepest love goes out to you all. Robin xxxx.”
Robin also enjoyed a surprise visit from his equally famous brother Barry Gibb and in his description of their time together he sounds very optimistic about making a full recovery.
“It was great to see Barry and [his wife] Linda on their surprise visit!” he wrote. “We got a lot of talking done and made good plans between us for the future.”
Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery!
