Scotland and Lions legend Hastings reveals he is battling cancer

Former Scotland centre Scott Hastings has revealed he is undergoing treatment for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

When he retired, he was Scotland’s most-capped player ever. Twice a member of the British Lions in 1989 (Australia) and 1993 (New Zealand) where he suffered a shattered cheekbone and did not play against the All Blacks.

He wrote on Twitter: “Thanks for all your supportive messages that are helping me get through my chemo for Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

“I am half-way through treatment which is going well apart from hair! @JennyHastings17 Corey @KAHastings1996 Can’t wait to be together again later this summer! #cancer.”

What is Non-Hodgkin lymphoma?

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that begins in your lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s germ-fighting immune system. In non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, white blood cells called lymphocytes grow abnormally and can form growths (tumors) throughout the body. – https://www.mayoclinic.org/
