Oasis guitarist Bonehead, real name Paul Arthurs, has shared an update with his fans as he marks the halfway point in his treatment for tonsil cancer. The musician, 56, shared a message on social media, telling his followers he’s “still smiling” in spite of the treatment he’s receiving.
I’ve done 16 out of 30 sessions of radiotherapy and it’s getting sore, but I’m still smiling
In view of his 137,000 followers, Bonehead told how he’s looking forward to recovery following the rest of his cancer treatment.
He wrote: “Quick update.
“I’m in again for chemotherapy overnight tonight.
“That’s my second and final session of chemo, the first wiped me out but hopefully this one will be better,” he penned.
The star went on: “I’m just past the halfway point in treatment now, I’ve done 16 out of 30 sessions of radiotherapy and it’s getting sore, but I’m still smiling, feeling positive and being me.
“Counting down the days now and I’ll be finished the day after my birthday on the 24th.
