JOHN HARTSON has posted an inspirational message on his social media page using the ten-year challenge! The idea of the challenge is to post a picture of yourself ten years prior next to a current photo to note the difference.
John posted up an image of himself when he was in the midst of a cancer battle where he almost lost his life, and the picture next to it paints an incredibly healthy Hartson enjoying life.
The big striker who was a fantastic buy for Martin O’Neill’s men back in the 00s got a horrible testicular cancer diagnosis which had spread throughout his body.
John needed an operation on his brain it got so bad. It was touch and go for a while, but the Welshman pulled through in the end much to the delight of everyone.
It’s easy to get lost in the nonsense which is football, but Hartson’s real win against Cancer when all looked lost should be celebrated and give others hope.
Since beating the disease, the former player has gone on to set up a cancer charity to raise awareness for men always to be vigilant when it comes to their manhood.
