In a confidential interview, Sir Sam Neill disclosed that he has stage 3 blood cancer and feels like he may be “dying.”.

The Jurassic Park actor started his autobiography, Did I Ever Told You This? which is set to be released next week, with a stirring line. “The problem is that I’m a thief. Perhaps deceased. Maybe I better get moving.”. “.

Sam, 75, first noticed swollen glands while promoting the most recent Dominion game instalment last year.

After receiving chemotherapy, which ultimately failed, he was later told he had angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. He then received chemotherapy treatment; however, he will need to continue taking it for the rest of his life even though he is now cancer-free.

I can’t pretend that the previous year wasn’t challenging, the New Zealand-born actor said. However, those terrible times have taught me to appreciate every day and be incredibly grateful for all my friends. They, you know, bring the sunshine into sharp focus. I’m thankful to be alive. “.

Fans have rallied to Sam’s cause, with many supporting him as he fights cancer.

Undoubtedly, the star will receive support from four kids. After adopting Noriko Watanabe’s first daughter from her previous marriage, he shares two children with his ex-wife Noriko Watanabe and one with his ex-girlfriend Lisa Harrow. He also had a child in 1994 with a different woman and another son.

According to Cancer Research UK, angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that targets t-cells, which are a component of the immune system.

Aside from lymph node swelling, other symptoms include joint inflammation, rashes, itching, fever, and weight loss.

Despite being curable, this type of cancer has a high risk of relapsing.
