He said he was referred to an oncologist immediately, who briefed him on what he needs to do to combat the terminal disease.

“First thing will be to undergo a pet scan to see if the cancer has spread to other parts of my organ and finally determine what stage it is in.

“Next Monday morning, I will also do a bone marrow test as lymphoma cancer is also linked to our bone marrow,” he wrote.

Thankfully, Chef Wan said that his chances of beating the disease currently stands between 70% to 80% as it was detected early.

He also said that he will be starting his chemo treatment, which will last for 13 weeks.

‘I accept the challenges with courage’

Despite the diagnosis, Chef Wan stayed cheerful and even joked about the different wigs that he could have when his hair starts to fall off as a result of the chemo treatment.

I accept all my challenges with an open heart and great courage. This is life…..you simply need to take things one at day at a time and in a positive way.

“I need to be strong and get well as I also need to look after so many people.
Insyallah, Allah will look after me,” he wrote.

In the comment section, there was an outpouring of support from netizens, who wished the 65-year-old celebrity chef a speedy recovery.
