Just three months after he shared that his cancerous tumors were “shrinking”, Mark Pilgrim revealed that he was bed-bound following a setback.
Sharing a picture of him propped up against some pillows, the Hot 102.7 presenter revealed that he had to cancel a family holiday as his health had begun to deteriorate.
She shared: “The doctor called with bad news saying we shouldn’t go. Even though I’ve been man-down this week, I thought the fresh air would do me good. The girls [wife and daughter] were so excited to go on holiday.
“Turns out though, after 9 rounds of chemo, my body has called for a time-out. My immune system has crashed”.
But despite the prognosis, Mark Pilgrim was on his positive energy high.
He continued: “Good news is my doctors have been amazing today. We avoided hospitalization, and my white blood count should increase in the coming week or so”.
He added: “Trying to keep it real in my posts. Not every day is a good day, but I continue to choose to see the sunshine every day”.

He shared: “Last few days have been a little rougher than anticipated”.
In June, Mark was diagnosed with Covid-19 whilst battling stage four cancer. But whilst Covid-19 could have devastating effects on the lungs in the form of infections like pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and sepsis, Mark made a full recovery
Mark also shared that his heart was in perfect working condition – a medical miracle following his heart attack in 2008 which left him with “permanent damage”.
