Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe has suffered a relapse of lymphoma, which is a type of cancer he was first diagnosed with in Ocotber 2012.
“After a brilliant year of self discovery and recovery, I have more work to do,” Crowe said via his Twitter account. “My friend and tough taskmaster Lymphoma is back to teach me.
“To say you can’t beat lymphoma is not quite true, many have. Yet follicular lymphoma is incurable, and can be treated and tamed for many long years.”
Crowe noted that he visited the doctor after suffering from back pains and, after undergoing tests, it was revealed that he once again had lymphoma.
“I was hopeful that after the first episode I might be clear for a few years; I felt very well,” he told Fairfax Media. “I feel much wiser and better equipped to deal with the situation than I was last time. I’ll get stuck into the treatment again with the same resolve and positivity.”
