“Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good,” he continues.
“I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery.”
He added how “profoundly grateful” he is for the love and support from his family and friends and also used the moment to remind his American fans to vote.
