HEALTH | World Cancer Day 2022

We spoke to Rotherham United defender Angus Macdonald with some inspiring words and advice for World Cancer Day 2022.

It was September 2019 when Angus was told a stomach condition he had battled against since the age of 15 – had turned into bowel cancer. Since then, after two operations Angus is in remission and is now doing well. Thrilled to be back on the pitch, doing what he loves as his team push for promotion to the EFL Championship in 2022.

After receiving the all-clear in December 2019 The Angus Macdonald Foundation was founded in support of people under 30 with bowel cancer and other cancers in relation to early diagnosis awareness. The strong advice to anybody going through what Angus went through was to keep your mind busy, stay positive and spend as much time around your loved ones. Angus’ positive mindset with the support of his loved ones and teammates got him through his dark times.
