Tim Lobinger suffers from cancer again.
The former pole vaulter was diagnosed with aggressive leukemia five years ago. Three years ago, doctors confirmed that he no longer had cancer. But now the shocking news: The cancer is back! In an interview with ‘Bunte’, the now 49-year-old explained: “My little son will start school this year, my daughter is getting married in the summer. When you have that in mind and you know that you probably won’t experience it anymore, it’s terrible.” It is definitely another therapy option that can help me. And if my chance is only one percent, I take it.” Lobinger spoke about his latest illness in an interview with ‘Stern’. Pictures showed him with his hair falling out after chemotherapy.
“On the way home from the clinic, I was able to pull out strands,” she described. Lobinger reacted more emotionally to the photos of her with her family than her Star The thing that cost him the most was that her loved ones also had to suffer a lot. However, Lobinger definitely did not want to give up. “Losing is not an option, that applies to my whole life and also to the diagnosis. That’s me!” was his declaration of war. Although he admitted that “the second cancer is harder to beat,” he said, “I am really fit.”
