Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Bille, who is a member of the Danish Parliament and founder of the party Forward, have been diagnosed with testicular cancer.
This was stated in a public Facebook update on Thursday evening.
- unfortunately, I must tell you a sad news from the private front. Last week I got diagnosed, testicular cancer, and it was a bit of a shock to me and my family, writes Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Beetle.
the Politician has previously had the disease close up on life, when his former husband, Henning Olsen, died of cancer in 2016 after having been ill for six years.
Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Bille states that he has been operated on the university hospital Thursday, where doctors said that his chance for recovery is 'very good'.
- today I had surgery at Rigshospitalet in copenhagen, and I hope that I can soon return to everyday life again. The next time I will use to be fresh together with my pregnant wife and our little daughter. I hope for understanding that I need peace and quiet in the coming weeks, writes Simon Emil Ammitzbøll-Beetle.
In a short time it passed into with wishes for a speedy recovery from both former and current colleagues at the Palace.
- The best thoughts to you, writes defence minister Trine Team.
- Well, Simon Emil - as if you haven't had enough to do with the disease already. AWAY with it! Luckily you are a fighter, and the doctors are skilled in this area. All the best thoughts and wishes to your whole little family, writing, Mette Bock, former member of the Danish parliament for Liberal Alliance.
