When you're fighting one of the toughest illnesses in the world, it's good to know that there are always people who'll be by your side.
In the case of Xolani Gwala, this friend happens to be none other than radio personality Redi Tlhabi. The author/radio personality took to Twitter to give people an update on how Xolani Gwala is fairing in his fight against colon cancer.
I saw Gwala recently. He is his usual self. Previous op went VERY well. But remember it's not a sprint but an ultramarathon..there are a few more steps ahead. But I promise you...Xolani is exceeding all expectations. My darling friend is still standing. That IS significant pic.twitter.com/QSTevrnqcW— Redi Tlhabi (@RediTlhabi) June 14, 2018
Many followers shared in the delight of hearing that he was doing well and some expressed even bigger words of support for the journey that was still ahead of him
