What disease does Rhod Gilbert have?
Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert abruptly declared on Facebook that he was diagnosed with cancer. He won’t be giving live performances at this time.
The specific form of cancer he is facing hasn’t, however, been stated.
Gilbert, a committed supporter of Velindre Cancer Center, spoke highly of his contacts with the personnel, patients, and families there.
To be the patient there, though, was something he had never imagined.
The 53-year-old said he enjoyed being among people he trusted and valued the good care he received from the NHS.
Even worse, he hinted that he would return with a 40-minute tirade against orange squash.
