ALI CARTER TREATED FOR CANCER

Some sad news today that Ali Carter has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Ali will undergo surgery tomorrow and then receive chemotherapy treatment.

The three times ranking event winner and twice World Championship finalist has had to contend with Crohn’s disease and its effects on his career since 2003.

He is one of snooker’s toughest characters and will doubtless meet this latest health setback with trademark grit.

Everyone in the snooker world will wish him all the best for his treatment and recovery.

Jimmy White also battled testicular cancer in the 1990s. More than 2,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with the condition every year.

Awful news - like everyone involved in or who follows the sport I'm hoping he'll get through this.

As you've said before on this blog the Captain has shown true 'character' in staying at the top of the sport in spite of Crohn's. So unfair that he has to face this.

Truly shocking news, the guy just can't catch a break with his health. I hope Ali gets nothing but positive results from his forthcoming treatment, all the best to him.

I wish him all the very best. Perhaps those players who spend a lot of time whining about having to play too much or travel too far can now see how shallow they are.

I think Ali has a right to moan because his Crohns disease makes travelling difficult but I was thinking more along the lines of Marl Allen.

his crohns is of no concern of Barry Hearn and World snooker they cant cater for every illness going. carter, allen and every other player got a choice play or quit moaning is just pathetic because professional sportsmen travels and travels a hell of a lot.
