Unfortunately James was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma a few weeks ago. This is the same cancer he suffered with in his late 20's. He was not feeling particularly unwell but noticed a swollen gland which was investigated. Last week James had his first week of chemotherapy. The treatment is in four week cycles with a week of intensive inpatient treatment one week in four.
James will do as much TV work as his energy levels permit and is planning to attend as many of our Track Training days as he can although he is unlikely to be riding.
Many fans and customers have already sent their best wishes which is appreciated. We will be selling some JW69 bobble hats in the very near future to raise money for Lee Johnston's F13K Cancer charity which supports the Marie Curie charity.
