Brooks Ayers Reveals He Has Stage 3 Cancer!

Brooks Ayers who is mostly known being the on and off boyfriend of Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has revealed to Radar Online that he's been diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer. This comes on the heels of an initial diagnosis last year.

“Life is funny sometimes. Sometimes it is not,” Ayers told Radar. “My reality is that I have, once again, been diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma.”

“I appreciate the prayers, support, and positive vibes from anyone who would wish to send them. Let me assure you that I am going to remain positive and continue to battle this disease vigorously with much tenacity along with seeking the appropriate medical care. Finally, please respect my family’s privacy in this matter as we walk through this challenging time.”

“I am determined to fight this horrible disease and am surrounded by love and support from people who truly care about me,” he added.

According to Ayers, “Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the most common type of lymphoma. Although there are more than 50 types of NHL, diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type, making up about 30 percent of all lymphomas. In the United States, DLBCL affects about 7 out of 100,000 people each year. DLBCL is a fast-growing, aggressive form of NHL. DLBCL is fatal if left untreated, but with timely and appropriate treatment, approximately 60 percent of all patients can be cured.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brooks, Vicki and his family during this difficult time. Wishing Brooks a speedy recovery.
