Get Well Soon John Hartson

Life is a fragile thing, you never know when it's going to kick you in the teeth, and tragically for John Hartson, the blows can often be near fatal.

The sad reports breaking are that former Arsenal striker, John Hartson is suffering from brain cancer and will undergo chemotherapy as treatment.

Hartson was admitted to hospital after suffering from splitting headaches and was given the devastating news that he had testicular cancer and that it had spread to his brain.

Vital Arsenal would like to wish you all the best John, and may you find the strength you need to fight your way through this.

I'm no doctor, but any problems with the brain have got to be extremely worrying to say the least. All the best to him and his family.

John apparently underwent emergency brain surgery ... and also the cancer has spread to his lungs too. It all sounds pretty dire. God speed big feller.

Last I heard he was in critical condition after surgery on Tuesday. It's now Friday, has anybody heard anything else?
