Rolling Stones’ guitarist Ronnie Wood just revealed he battled cancer for a second time during lockdown the past year but has since “come through with the all-clear.” The 73-year-old was diagnosed with small cell cancer. Wood told The Sun he did his best to remain upbeat with this second round of cancer, “All I can do is stay positive in my attitude, be strong and fight it, and the rest is up to my higher power.”
In 2017, Wood successfully fought lung cancer and had part of his lung surgically removed.
