“This is a difficult message to write. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in the second stage and I will start a course of treatment next week.
Although it is a shock to me and my family, the diagnosis is positive and I am sure I will get well and be ready to play again as soon as possible.
I would like to express my appreciation to the doctors, nurses and staff who care for my care for their professionalism, warmth and patience during this time.
I would also like to thank all the staff in the Welsh federation because without the prompt response of the medical team we probably would not have diagnosed the disease.
I would also like to say a thank you to Bournemouth for their support and help over the past few days.
Although I estimate that there will be interest and attention from the media. I would like you to respect my privacy in the coming months and I myself will report on the progress of my health when I have this opportunity.
In the meantime, I want to thank all of you for the messages of support, they mean a lot to me and they will mean the months to come.
“I look forward to seeing you again and playing the sport I love soon.”
