Johannesburg - Radio personality, Darren Scott has spent the past few months in-and-out of hospital. Darren’s fight against cancer has been a long-standing one, as he was first diagnosed with Melanoma in 2012.
After extensive treatment, Darren was in remission until October this year, when he faced a renewed cancer scare after doctors found melanoma in his upper left lobe in his lung.
Darren was wheeled in for a five-hour surgery in an attempt by doctors to remove the melanoma. The radio presenter spent weeks recovering in hospital. Throughout the ordeal Darren remained in high spirits, and regularly updated fans about his progress on social media.
While Darren was in hospital in October, he and his wife Sarah-Kate shocked fans with news that they were separating. At the time they both asked for privacy to deal with the matter, but assured fans that it was an amicable split.
But this was not the end of Darren’s health troubles. During a routine check a few weeks after the five-hour surgery, Darren was wheeled in for surgery again, after doctors found more cause for concern on his other lung.
It certainly has been a tough year for Darren and his family, but Darren’s fighting spirit is nothing short of inspiring.
