Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood reveals he’s been given the all-clear after second cancer diagnosis

Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood revealed that he was recently diagnosed with a rare cancer, small-cell carcinoma. The 73-year-old Wood said he spent the latest lockdown “fighting” the disease, but has since been given the all-clear by doctors.  This is Wood’s second battle against cancer, following a previous diagnosis of lung cancer in 2017.

Said Wood: “I’ve had cancer two different ways now. I had lung cancer in 2017 and I had small-cell more recently that I fought in the last lockdown.” Wood credited the idea of “higher power” in aiding his recent recovery, saying, “I’m going through a lot of problems now, but throughout my recovery, you have to let it go. And when you hand the outcome over to your higher power, that is a magic thing. All I can do is stay positive in my attitude, be strong and fight it, and the rest is up to higher power.”
