The posting reads: "Hours prior to the Wrexham show, Tony was diagnosed with a strain of Cancer. He has since undergone an operation and has recently begun an initial series of radiology and chemotherapy treatment. During this period he has been at times quite poorly, very tired and has been forced to spend time in hospital or in recuperation following treatment. The initial signs to his prescribed treatment are proving positive. Tony is in a very, very positive frame of mind in respect of his condition, and has continued to work virtually unaffected.
