Join Billy Dib in the fight against blood cancer
Donate today to Westmead Hospital's Haematology & Bone Marrow Transplant Ward, C5a.
Two-Time World Boxing Champion, Billy Dib announced last month that he had won the greatest fight of his life, against cancer and is now in remission.
Over the past five months, Billy has been fighting an aggressive and rare form of cancer called non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his stomach, followed by gruelling rounds of chemotherapy at Westmead Hospital.
On learning of his cancer diagnosis last year, Billy said, “Even though I have won world titles and I am an accomplished athlete, I never for once said ‘why me,’ I always said, ‘why not me’ as I am no better than anyone else, and we are all children of God.”
In addition to the love and support of his family and friends, Billy also credited the team at Westmead Hospital’s Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant Ward, C5a for his excellent care during his treatment.
As an inpatient in C5a , Billy said, "Each and every one of these nurses and doctors have been second to none."
“They’ve gone above and beyond to make sure that I’m comfortable.”
