DJ and producer Michael Bibi has taken to social media to provide an update on his health after being diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma, a rare form of brain and spinal cancer. The 32-year-old musician shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed, beginning the final phase of his treatment, which includes a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. In his post, Michael expressed his hope of being cancer-free and his determination to fight through the tough journey ahead.
Michael received an outpouring of support from fellow DJs in the industry and his fans upon sharing his health update. The London-based DJ made a surprise return to music in September, performing at Ibiza's DC-10 club for the Solid Grooves closing party. This marked his first set since his cancer diagnosis earlier in June, which resulted in the cancellation of his summer performances.
The artist had initially revealed his diagnosis on social media, informing his followers about his battle with CNS Lymphoma. Despite the challenging news, Michael expressed his strength and determination in not letting cancer defeat him. He later revealed that his tinnitus diagnosis, which had forced him to cancel previous performances, was related to his more serious health concern in his brain and brain stem.
CNS Lymphoma, also known as primary central nervous system lymphoma, is a rare type of cancer that affects the brain and spinal cord. Lymphoma typically starts in the lymphatic system, which includes lymph glands and lymphatic vessels. This form of lymphoma specifically affects the lymph tissue in the brain and spinal cord. The condition requires specialized treatment and care.
Throughout his career, Michael Bibi has built a successful reputation as a DJ and producer, running two music labels - Solid Grooves and SG Raw. With over 1.1 million followers on Instagram, he has garnered a significant fan base. Despite his health challenges, Michael remains determined to overcome his illness and return to the music scene stronger than ever.
