“I am happy, I’m strong, I’m nervous as hell and I’m emotional,” he said.
Gwala revealed in an interview that he was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer.
“I came straight from the hospital to do that interview, maybe two weeks prior I had my first surgery. I had lost so much weight, I was ill and really really ill,” he said.
“The discovered it through the liver first and traced it back to colon. It was in the colon. Seven out of eight segments of my livers were covered with cancer. My doctor said now that when he first looked at the scan, I had more cancer than I had a healthy liver,” Gwala said.
Gwala has had three operations in his stomach, a procedure called embolization and other procedure to put in a port to take chemotherapy.
“With the passage of time, you will understand certain things and at the moment I don’t understand, I don’t know. All I know it that I’m here and I am grateful everyday top be here,” he said.
