President David Granger and his wife,  Sandra Granger last night returned to Guyana from Cuba after spending approximately three weeks there, a release from the Ministry of the Presidency said.

The President who was accompanied by the First Lady, travelled to Cuba on October 30, 2018 to undergo a medical investigation.

 While in Cuba, President Granger was diagnosed with Non- Hodgkin Lymphoma after an intensive series of tests by specialist doctors at the Centro de Investigaciones Medico Quirugicas (CIMEQ) in Havana.

Given the diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the President’s Medical Team has performed a number of medical interventions including the first round of chemotherapy. The President has responded well to the treatment and was given approval to return to Guyana.

President Granger once again expresses profound gratitude to all those who sent their well-wishes for his full and complete recovery, the release said.
