Rhod Gilbert reveals cancer diagnosis

Comedian Rhod Gilbert has revealed he is undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with cancer.

The 53-year-old Welsh TV and radio presenter has been collecting donations for the sick for years.

However, in a new Facebook post (July 14), Gilbert revealed that he himself is currently being treated for an unspecified type of cancer.

“As the proud patron of Velindre Cancer Centre, I’ve traveled the world hosting messy quizzes and star-studded comedy nights,” he began of the Cardiff treatment centre.

“I have met and befriended so many inspiring staff, patients and their families. It’s been a big part of my life for the past 10 years. Although I never thought I would be a patient here, I know better than anyone that I am in the best possible hands.”

He continued: “The NHS care I receive is incredible. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone… but who knows, maybe I’ll come out the other end with a new stand-up show and a 40-minute tirade about orange squash.

“Thank you everyone for your support over the last few weeks and months (and years). I will be gone for a while and not comment further, at least not right now while I focus on my recovery.”

Below the post, thousands flooded the comments with messages of hope and love.

“Thinking of you, buddy. Feeling better and see you soon xx,” wrote fellow comedian Jason Manford.

Welsh skateboarder Matthew Pritchard wished Gilbert a “speedy recovery”.
