Bee Gee Robin Gibb has liver cancer

2011-11-21 08:07

London - Robin Gibb, singer and musician with legendary band the Bee Gees, is being treated for liver cancer after being diagnosed with the disease several months ago, Britain's Sunday Mirror reported.

The 61-year-old singer, whose frail appearance has caused concern among Britain's media, was hospitalised last week after making an emergency call from his house in Thame, south west England, according to the tabloid newspaper.

Robin's twin brother Maurice died in 2003 from complications resulting from a twisted intestine, and younger brother Andy died in 1988 following a battle against cocaine addiction.

Older brother and fellow Bee Gee Barry has returned to Britain along with 91-year-old mother Barbara, according to the report.

The British-born brothers scaled the heights of the pop world in the 1970s with disco hits Stayin' Alive and Night Fever, and notched up over 200 million record sales during a career which has spanned seven decades.

Robin was forced to cancel several appointments last month, including one with British Prime Minister David Cameron, after he was hospitalised with severe stomach pains.

His spokesperson said the family did not want to comment on the reports.

      The kings (queens) of the falsetto ... One of the biggest selling bands ever, thanks to Rosebank, Cape Town, San Franciso and pretty much the whole of Greece.

    I love the Bee Gees' music. I know it's in bad taste but there's only one song that comes to mind right now ... 'Then I get night fever, night fever. We know how to do it. Gimme that night fever, night fever. We know how to show it.' Apologies in advance, it's a sick world I know ...

    Big Fan! Robin needs to read the book "Cure for Advanced Cancer" By DR Hulda Clark, This book explains new approach to alternative medicine, what Orodox Doctors wont tell you. The book explains how to use frequencies, herbs, mneras and vitamins, (liver and Kidney cleanse) an a device called OxyGenius Ozonator. Atoms of oxyogen attacks and destroys cancer cells, delivers oxogen and rebuilds the immune system. You may find the book on ebay. or drclark dot com. also Tools for Healing. Its not to late! Ive cured myself from macular degeneration which there is no cure for, with the knowlege in her book and a frequency generator. This kills parasites the cause of most diseases. I pray you try this. Love the Bee Gees. Anyone who has cancer or knows someone , should read this book or Cures for all Diseases. Aids/Hiv can also be cured. Essiac Tea is also. recomended fo cancer and Aids
