Hank Green Health Update
Hank is diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, In the 13-minute video, the 43-year-old co-founder of VidCon said that he will start chemotherapy “very soon.” He doesn’t have any signs, but he says he’s “stressed.”
“I think we probably caught mine early. He said, “I’m still waiting for a scan to kind of confirm that.”
Green and his brother, “The Fault in Our Stars” author John Green, gained a following through their YouTube program, vlogbrothers, which they started in 2007.
Hank talked about John, who is 45, during his cancer reveal, even though John wasn’t in the video.
“I’ve already told you this, John. I told her, “You know, so far in human history, this is the best time to get lymphoma.” “That’s a very Hank Green thought, and then you gave me a very John Green thought,” Hank joked.
“Well, a year from now would have been better,” you said.
The Post has asked the boys’ representatives what they have to say. A representative for John Green would not say anything.
Hank said that his friends who had been in similar situations helped him out.
“So, I’ve talked to a few friends who have been through different kinds of cancer and cancer treatment, and one thing they’ve all said is, ‘This is your job now,'” he said.
“Take this day by day. Don’t owe anyone anything. You can have things you can do that day if you want to, and it’s good to have those things because depression and worry are a big part of this,” he said.
“I haven’t had a lot of trouble with that, but now I’ve seen for myself how closely linked those things can be.”
He said that he still wants to have things to look forward to during his treatment, but he isn’t promising that he will keep making vlogs or be as busy on social media.
He said about his condition, “And it stinks.” “Like, I know this is bad for me the most, but I also know it’s bad for everyone in this town.”
He went on: “So, I want to apologize, but that would be stupid, so I won’t. But I think you get my point.”
In the video’s caption, he said, “This stinks so much, but I’m already learning so much, mostly about myself.”
The organizers of VidCon also said on Instagram that Hank will not be at the gathering next month:
“To our Co-Founder, go-to science guy, and the only person on the internet who seems to know where all the candle wax goes: we’re sending all the love from the VidCon community and beyond,” read Friday’s post.
