In September last year, Peter Overton heard the words no one ever wants to hear.
“I’m really concerned about this, Peter. This could be lymphoma,” his GP told him.
In an interview with Stellar, Overton, 52, explained he had been feeling unwell for months. He felt rundown and lethargic, he told a colleague on set he felt “abysmal”.
He had lumps all over his body and his neck was so swollen he couldn’t button up his shirt collar.
His wife Jessica Rowe, 47, finally convinced him to see a GP.
After examining Overton the GP told the veteran news reporter he could have lymphoma, a cancer of the blood.
