Doctors Satisfied with Guyana President’s Cancer Treatment Results and Recovery

President David Granger

GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Wednesday July 24, 2019 – Specialists in Cuba who have been treating President David Granger since he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma last year say they are satisfied with the results and his recovery process.

Granger, who travelled to Cuba last Saturday for a medical evaluation at the Centro de Investigaciones Médico Quirúrgicas (CIMEQ), returned to Guyana yesterday evening.

A statement issued by Guyana’s Ambassador to Cuba Halim Majeed shortly after he arrived home, said the President’s team of medical specialists undertook four investigations and “have found nothing negative about his present state of health”.

“In keeping with the protocol associated with the treatment and monitoring of this type of medical condition, the specialists have proposed that he returns to Cuba after 90 days for another round of evaluation,” it added.

President Granger, 77, was diagnosed with cancer in Cuba, in November 2018.

Since then, he has returned to Havana on several occasions for treatment and assessments.
