Andy Whitfield was an actor best known for his leading role in the series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. In March 2010, Andy was diagnosed with cancer – non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Right after he received his diagnosis, the warrior from Spartacus started his treatment in New Zealand. Not knowing what would happen with his life and his fight against cancer, Andy decided to invite someone to follow him and record everything in his journey as he explored several healing options in Australia, New Zealand, and India.
Unfortunately, in September 2011, after just a little over a year after being diagnosed, Whitfield lost his fight with the disease but as a result of his idea, he left behind an incredible documentary about his battle with lymphoma. Watch some clips of his documentary “Be Here Now”.
Just likeAndy Whitfield, unfortunately, many others have been and still are fighting lymphoma. Learn more about WWF wrestler, bodyguard, “The A-Team” TV star and movie actor, Mr. T’s battle with T-cell lymphoma.
