1. David Brooks
Yesterday, it was reported that Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks has been diagnosed with cancer. The 24-year-old who represented Wales during the international break revealed that he has stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a cancer of the immune system. The diagnosis was made possible by the medical team of the Welsh national team. This type of cancer limits the body's ability to fight diseases, and it is treatable.
The midfielder who plays for AFC Bournemouth and Wales is expected to start treatment for cancer next week, and it is our hope that he recovers as soon as possible.
2. Sol Samba
The Ivorian is another footballer who has been diagnosed with cancer in 2021, and that is quite unfortunate. The center back announced in January 2021 that he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. This is a type of blood cancer, and It is treatable by Chemotherapy.
Samba started Chemotherapy treatment, and he was fortunate to be declared cancer free after four months. In May 2021, he shared the good news with the public, and he has returned to football with Middlesbrough.
We hope that David Brooks' recovery will be swift.
