Bournemouth: David Brooks free from cancer after treatment


Bournemouth: David Brooks

Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks revealed that he is free of cancer after completing his treatment on the same day that Bournemouth secured promotion to the Premier League. Brooks was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin Lymphoma last October which affects the immune system. This type of cancer affects adults in their 20s and adults over the age of 70.

“It has been a few months since my last update and in that time I have thankfully completed my cancer treatment. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible medical staff for their amazing work and support throughout the process,” Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks said. “Last week I met with my specialist having reviewed my final test results. I am delighted to say the treatment was successful and I can now say I have been given the all-clear and am now cancer-free. “Those words feel incredible to say and I am so thankful for all your messages and good wishes, these really helped me through the tough times. I am so excited to start the journey back to full fitness and continue my football career. I am determined to work my hardest over the months ahead and I can’t wait to be back out there and playing in front of you on the pitch in the not-so-distant future.”

“I’m absolutely buzzing. It’s been a fantastic two weeks for me. I’ve got the great news of the diagnosis and I can finally put that to bed,” he added. “Then to watch the boys clinch promotion, it’s obviously fantastic. The boys have deserved it all season. It was a bit nervy towards the end and Forest has done really well; they deserve to be in the situation they’re in.”
