Jonas Gutierrez has given out the good news that he has beaten cancer, and his testicular cancer is in remission.
Jonas Gutierrez in action for Newcastle
Jonas revealed a few weeks ago that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer last year, and he has only recently competed chemotherapy treatment, but was fit enough to run and complete the Buenos Aries marathon, and he was running for charity.
The chemotherapy treatment dramatically changed his appearances and his long hair fell out, and that was the same long hair that inspired Andy Carroll to grow his hair long once Jonas arrives six years ago.
But the treatment also seems to have worked, and there is no cancer in Jonas body – which is terrific news.
This is what Jonas tweeted:
“Today I’ve been given the all clear. Many thanks to all those who accompanied me in this moment.”
Here’s Jonas Twitter account if you want to send him a congratulatory message.
This is great news for Jonas – and of course he has shown fantastic guts and courage since he was diagnosed with the disease last year.
