Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell Makes Post-Cancer Announcement Live Return
Campbell recently revealed that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but that he is committed to his touring schedule with Leppard and Last in Line, the reunited Dio band lineup.
"6 months of chemotherapy is the prescribed treatment," wrote the guitarist. "I'm about 2 months in and feeling rather spiffy, all things considered. Hodgkin's has an over 80% cure rate, so by my reckoning, if you're going to have a cancer, Hodgie's is the one to have!"
"Thank you to all who have offered support; I'm very, very touched by that," Campbell posted following fan reaction to the news. "Be assured, however, that the Last In Line shows will still be happening in August - I have no intention of letting cancer slow me down. I look forward to seeing you all then."
