Bournemouth player David Brooks has been told this week that he has Hodgkins disease, a form of lymph node cancer. Brooks will be treated and will receive full support from Bournemouth.
Brooks (24) was out and about with the Wales national team. He left last week and after investigation revealed that he has Stadium 2 Hodgkin Lymphoma. This is a hard message for me to write, Brooks says through Bournemouth
s official channels.
While this is a shock to me and my family, the forecast is positive and I am convinced that I will fully recover to play again as soon as possible. I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, doctors and staff members for their professionalism, warmth and understanding during this period. I would also like to thank Bournemouth. I understand that there will be media attention, but I ask for respect for my privacy, says Brooks.
Brooks is working on his fourth season in Bournemouth service. He previously played for Sheffield United and Halifax Town.
