David Brooks: 24-year-old Welsh international reveals cancer diagnosis

Read Time:2 Minute, 30 Second

The 24-year-old player currently plays for the Bournemouth team. He posted a message on Twitter on Wednesday stating that he will begin treatment next week.

“I was diagnosed with stage II Hodgkin’s lymphoma and will start a course of treatment next week,” he said wrote.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, lymphoma is a cancer that affects the lymphatic system, or “tissues and organs that produce, store, and carry white blood cells that fight infection.”

According to the CDC, the two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which spreads in an orderly manner through the lymph nodes, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which spreads in an unordered manner.

“Although this shocked my family and me, the prognosis is positive and I believe I will fully recover and resume playing as soon as possible,” Brooks added.

Brooks played in the Premier League before Bournemouth’s relegation in 2020 and is considered one of his country’s most promising talents. He withdrew from Wales last week due to illness.

He thanked the medical staff for discovering the underlying symptoms and the doctor who diagnosed him.

He added: “I want to thank the doctors, nurses, consultants and staff who have been treating me during this period for their professionalism, enthusiasm and understanding.”

“I want to thank everyone in the Welsh Football Association, because without the prompt attention of their medical team, we might not be able to detect this disease.

“I would also like to thank AFC Bournemouth for all the support and help given in the past week.”

‘I want to request respect for my privacy’

Since he shared his diagnosis, the football world has been around the midfielder, and clubs from various leagues have extended their best wishes to him.

His current team said it will support his players and provide all the support he needs.

Bournemouth CEO Neil Black said in a statement: “We will not set any timetable for his return; we will give David all the time he needs to recover and will do our best to help. he.”

“I know everyone will be keen to express their love and support for David, which will greatly help him recover, but we also urge everyone to respect the privacy of him and his family during this period.”

Brooks has played 9 times for Bournemouth this season, but will withdraw from the game when he starts to recover.

“Although I am grateful for the media’s attention and interest, I would like to request that my privacy be respected in the next few months, and I will share my progress when I can,” Brooks continued.

“At the same time, thank you all for your support message-this is significant and will continue to do so in the coming months.

“I look forward to seeing you again, and soon I can participate in the sport I love.”
