Consistent with advice from his doctors, President David Granger has reduced his public engagements while he continues treatment for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
The President, however, continues to perform his duties, a statement from the Ministry of the Presidency noted on Sunday night.
He is receiving treatment from a team of specialist doctors at the Centro de Investigaciones Medico Quirugicas (CIMEQ) in Havana, Cuba.
President Granger and his wife, Mrs. Sandra Granger returned to Guyana from the Republic of Cuba on November 20, 2018 after spending approximately three weeks there.
Given the diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the President’s medical team performed a number of medical interventions including the first round of chemotherapy treatment.
The statement noted that the President has responded well to the treatment.
According to the statement, the President expressed profound gratitude to all those who sent their well-wishes for his full and complete recovery.
