The thirty nine year old, who appeared in U.K. TV dramas Footballers’ Wives and The Bill, had received the bad news by his doctors last month January 12, 2012, and he has also put off a trip that he had planned to Los Angeles to fight off the decease.
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he tells fans,
”After getting (sic) scariest news… I have to now postpone my LA adventure for at least six months. I was born a fighter and will fight this.
“Time to battle the big C. Prognosis is good gang and should kick this into touch in about six months; well this should be a different journey.”
Richards is to undergo radiotherapy treatment.
