PRETTY MAIDS singer Ronnie Atkins says that he is cancer-free.
The Danish musician broke the news of his lung cancer diagnosis in October via the band’s Facebook page.
He wrote in an open letter to the PRETTY MAIDS fans that his illness “came totally unexpected without any typical symptoms.”
Earlier today, Atkins released the following update via the band’s social media:
“Some good news! A couple of days ago I had the fantastic message that there are no more signs of cancer to be seen/tracked based on the scans that I had taken recently. That’s the best news I have had in a long time, thank god.
“As for everyone who’s encountered cancer, I’m fully aware that it doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m ‘home safe’ and the next 5 years are so to speak crucially, but nevertheless it’s a big step in the right direction and a great relief for me and my family.
“To avoid or lower the chances of reoccurrences the doctors have recommended me to undergo immunotherapy for the next year, which I’ve naturally agreed to and already started up.
“Now it’s time to recuperate, regain some strength and knock myself back into shape, which I’m eager to do. There will/might be some sequelae that I have to deal with, but so be it. That’s life.
“With the risk of being accused of repeating myself, I once again wanna express my sincere thanx to all of you out there ( my army of beautiful souls ) who’s been supporting me throughout this with sweet greetings, messages, advice, and prayers. It’s been heartwarming and I’m forever grateful.”
