The Rolling Stones guitar player Ronnie Wood was identified with an unusual and aggressive type of cancer throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Wood, 73, exposed his fight with small-cell cancer in a brand-new interview with The Sun.
“I’ve had cancer two different ways now,” Ronnie informedThe Sun “I had lung cancer in 2017, and I had small-cell more recently that I fought in the last lockdown.”
Fortunately, Wood is obviously now on the repair, stating he’s gotten the “all-clear” from physicians. He credited his swift healing as the outcome of getting sober and “putting his fate in the hands of a ‘higher power.’”
“I’m going through a lot of problems now, but throughout my recovery, you have to let it go,” Wood commented. “And when you hand the outcome over to your higher power, that is a magic thing.”
“That brings you back to [Alcoholics Anonymous’] Serenity Prayer: ‘Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.’ That’s incredible,” Wood continued. “What will be will be, it’s nothing to do with me. All I can do is stay positive in my attitude, be strong and fight it, and the rest is up to my higher power.”
Wood likewise stated he kept himself sidetracked by painting: “Art therapy was self-imposed in a way, especially in lockdown,” he described. “The art has got me through it — to express and get lost. I’ve done so much work.”
Now that he’s healthy, Wood stated he is eagerly anticipating going back to the roadway with The Rolling Stones as soon as the band has the ability to resume its “No Filter Tour”.
