John “TotalBiscuit” Bain, a British eSports caster and content creator (also known as The Cynical Brit, and TotalHalibut), has announced he has terminal cancer. He stated in a tweet that although the cancer he had in his bowel is gone, cancerous spots have appeared in his liver. He’s aiming to seek chemotherapy, but says that there’s no cure for this type of caner at the moment.
Here is his tweet (@Totalbiscuit):
“Well, I don’t know if there is really a right way to tell people this, so I guess here goes. The CT did not come back negative. The cancer in the bowel is gone, but spots have appeared in my liver. They’re not operable and there’s no cure. Average life expectancy is 2-3 years, though there are outliers that live much longer. I’ll be back on chemo in a few weeks, with the goal of pushing it back and keeping it there for as long as possible. I fully intend to be the outlier, the average is this way because most people that get this are old and not strong anymore. Who knows what they’ll come up with in the next decade? I intend to beat it for as long as possible. Gonna need some time to process all of this. I don’t really feel anything right now. Thanks.”
