President David Granger, consistent with advice from his team of specialist doctors at the Centro de Investigaciones Medico Quirugicas (CIMEQ) in Havana, Cuba, continues to take precautionary measures in light of his recent diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a statement from the Ministry of the Presidency said tonight.
As such, due to his continued treatment, the Head of State’s public engagements have been reduced. Notwithstanding, President Granger continues to perform his duties, the statement added.
President Granger and his wife, Mrs. Sandra Granger returned to Guyana from Cuba on November 20, 2018 after spending approximately three weeks there.
Given the diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the President’s medical team 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 expressed profound gratitude to all those who sent their well-wishes for his full and complete recovery, the statement said.
