Vialli Cleared of Pancreatic Cancer

Former Chelsea Forward Gianluca Vialli has revealed that he is fine after undergoing a 17 Month Chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer.

He also told La Repubblica that he is very fortunate to be alive compared to those who have lost their lives in an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am fine,” Vialli told La Repubblica . “In December I finished 17 months of chemotherapy, one cycle of eight months and another of nine. It was difficult, even for someone as tough as me, both physically and mentally.

“The tests showed no sign of the illness. I am happy, even if I say that under my breath to be on the safe side.

“Regaining my health means seeing myself in the mirror again, seeing the hair grow, not having to draw eyebrows on with a pencil. In that respect, I feel very fortunate compared to many others.

“I think of those brought to hospital and forced to die alone, their relatives not allowed near in case of contagion, funerals that could not be celebrated. It's terrible. This crisis will leave enormous scars on the country; emotional, moral and economic scars.”
