Writer and entertainer Heo Ji Woong revealed he's completed chemotherapy for malignant lymphoma.
In December of last year, Heo Ji Woong told fans he was suffering from malignant lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, but in his latest Instagram update, he let everyone know he's now in recovery. He wrote:
"My chemotherapy is complete. In the follow-up tests, there weren't any abnormalities. My hair and eyebrows are growing back. I remember the warm heart of the person who collected four-leaf clovers in an album for his grandmother, but sent it to me instead because he thought I would need it. I remember the person who said they were able to get back up and gain strength through my writing during their most difficult time, so they wanted to help me now. I don't think I've lived a good enough life to deserve this kind of encouragement and support. I did try, but I don't think I was able to do so. The whole time I was laying in the hospital room, that embarrassed me the most.
Now, I'm exercising. I'm happy I'm able to exercise, so all I do is work out every day. I want to rebuild my strength quickly and be able to get back on my two feet with that strength. I'll become a kind adult who deserves encouragement and support. Thank you."
