BRUCE DICKINSON in Krebsbehandlung

Iron Maidens Frontsau Bruce Dickinson unterzieht sich derzeit einer Krebsbehandlung, wie die Band heute mitteilte.

Im Dezember wurde bei einer Routineuntersuchung ein kleiner krebsartiger Tumor entdeckt, worauf hin sich der Sänger einer Chemotherapie unterzog, die seit gestern abgeschlossen ist. Nach den nun üblichen Nachbehandlungen und der recht guten Diagnose des Arztes soll Dickinson bis zum Sommer/Herbst wieder voll einsatzfähig und fit sein.

Dazu das Statement der Band:

"Just before Christmas, Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson visited his doctor for a routine check-up. This led to tests and biopsies which revealed a small cancerous tumour at the back of his tongue. A seven week course of chemotherapy and radiology treatment was completed yesterday. As the tumour was caught in the early stages, the prognosis thankfully is extremely good. Bruce’s medical team fully expect him to make a complete recovery with the all clear envisaged by late May. It will then take a further few months for Bruce to get back to full fitness. In the meantime we would ask for your patience, understanding and respect for Bruce and his family’s privacy until we update everyone by the end of May. Bruce is doing very well considering the circumstances and the whole team are very positive."
