Michael Bibi has been diagnosed with central nervous system lymphoma, a rare cancer that affects the spine and brain, and has been hospitalised for treatment.
Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma occurs when cancer cells form in the lymph tissue of the brain and/or spinal cord, according to the National Cancer Institute. CNS lymphoma is rare, according to the Cleveland Clinic, with about 1,500 new cases in the United States each year.
A few weeks ago he posted on Instagram after postponing some gigs saying “He was hospitalized with health problems that he initially attributed to tinnitus and was doing loads of tests to work out what it was”
He posted on Instagram last night to update everyone with this message “Hello world, writing this post is a hard one.. last week I was diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma. A very rare cancer that effects the brain & spine. Unfortunately, it’s moving fast & l to have to stay in the hospital starting treatment immediately 😔 Typing this message doesn’t quite seem real & I’m sorry for the bad news. I don’t know what lies ahead, I’m tired but I know I am strong & I won’t let this beat me. I will be back stronger for you all. Love Bibi ❤️”
