Andy Taylor, who was struck down with fatal stage-four advanced prostate disease in 2018, speaks up about his struggle.
After being told that he had an inoperable malignancy, Andy Taylor claims that he “isn’t even intended to be alive.”
The 62-year-old guitarist, most recognized for being a member of Duran Duran, was identified with fatal stage-four metastasis prostate cancer back in 2018 but is now “asymptomatic” receiving cutting-edge therapy.
There wasn’t anything that could preserve you alive, he said in an interview with The Times. Palliative care and end-of-life care were assigned to me. And as of right now, I have no symptoms. For thirty years, I haven’t experienced anything like getting played on the radio. Hold on, I shouldn’t even be alive.
The musical artist of “Ordinary World,” that already revealed his new album, “Man’s A Wolf To Man,” underwent intravenous infusion of radioactive substances, a procedure invented by Welsh biologist and biotech entrepreneur.
He has a genius, Andy continued. He’s the Elon Musk of cancer, in my opinion.
The artist, who is married to Tracey Wilson and together they have four children, continued by saying that the “lowest point” of the entire experience was getting ready to bid goodbye to his family. He also characterized the entire event as being “mind-blowing” psychologically.
The lowest time, according to him, comes around six weeks following the diagnosis, when it finally hits home. You’ll have to bid your family farewell. The tenth birthday of your grandchild won’t be witnessed by you. It is astounding psychologically that counseling cannot take away the inevitability of death.
Andy recently revealed that cancer has “dragged [him] down” and that he was eager to get back to work after being absent to make the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of History entrance speech in November last year.
He told ‘BBC Breakfast’: “I needed needed to be in excellent physical condition to have this surgery, so I took care of me in a different way.” And then, after the first round of therapy, I asked, “If I’m OK, and you guys say I’m OK, and you do your blood tests and everything, is it OK to resume work?” To go out, what kind of light work?’ I don’t want to be a bedridden patient; I want to be a functioning patient.
A ray of light in the midst of despair because cancer takes you into the darkness, along with your family.
