Devastated fans are extending their support to Gott, who admitted he is suffering from acute leukemia
About a year and a half ago, Karel Gott, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, developed a hematopoiesis disorder in the form of Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Despite trying out every treatment method available, the disease has turned into acute leukemia in recent months. The singer reported he was undergoing outpatient treatment with regular check-ups in the hospital, in which the doctors monitor his general health.
“I didn't want to bother you with my problems, I'm not one of the people who talk about their privacy, especially health, in public, fishing for pity. I intended to cope with my illness alone, with the help of the world-class team of prof. Trněný, alongside my wife and my loved ones”,
the singer announced on his social network, mainly because the editors from the daily Blesk were asking about his health condition and he wished to prevent possible speculations. But he immediately received enormous support from his fans, which will surely warm his heart during this difficult time.
“Thank you for your sincere confession, I firmly hope and believe that with the support of your strong will, the love of your family and the knowledge of your doctors, you will beat this and you'll sing us many beautiful songs and impress us with your humble and loving expression again. Very rare in such a world famous personality. Much luck and health! We love you,"
a fan wrote under Karel Gott's statement.
And there are many more messages full of support and appreciation.
“Maestro, I wish you a speedy recovery and great joy with your beautiful daughters. Your songs always gave me much joy in life and now I'm sending you the energy necessary for healing in turn. Keep fighting, you have poeple to live for.”
“Maestro, fight like a lion! Personalities such as yourself are very rare beings. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you."
The singer's health deteriorated significantly for the first time four years ago. Due to an aggressive tumor, he had to undergo intensive treatment, which led to complete disappearance of the illness.
He is currently working on his autobiography and a feature documentary
Despite his serious health condition, Karel Gott did not renounce his duties. He reported he was currently putting the final touches to his autobiography, which should be published early next spring, and a few days ago the shooting of the footage for a feature documentary about his life was also finished.
