Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has been battling liver cancer and was rushed to the hospital recently. The 61-year-old musician has known about his condition for several months, and was rushed to hospital on November 15 but allowed back home after five hours of treatment.
The How Deep is Your Love star's wife Dwina and mother, Barbara, 91, have been with him at home in Thame while his elder brother and bandmate Barry has flown in from the US to help comfort him, Femalefirst reported. "Robin is not good and there is a lot of concern for him. Dwina is doing everything possible and hasn't left his side.
You can use your wealth to call in the best experts but sometimes no amount of fame, prestige and money can change things when it comes to cancer. "But Robin is a strong character, he is a fighter and has been encouraged by all the online messages from his fans," a friend said.
Gibb was treated for an inflamed colon in October after being taken to hospital complaining of "severe" abdominal pains.
