Shock diagnosis by the German celebrity reporter Benjamin Bieneck! On Thursday morning he was bald on Sat.1 “Breakfast TV” and moved the two presenters Alina Merkau (34) and Daniel Boschmann (40) to tears with his words.
Bieneck was connected by video and explained: «In the summer of this year I was diagnosed with cancer. Not just a tumor, but also that the cancer had already spread. ” After the tumor was surgically removed on July 23, a week-long chemotherapy followed. That’s why he is now bald and has no eyebrows.
Celebrity expert appeals to viewers
However, the treatment worked very well: “At the moment I am actually doing very well. I’m recovering from my chemotherapy. It will be alright.” In the meantime he has found the strength to speak about it publicly. “You gallop through this time and don’t even check what’s happening to you. The result came, and then it started with surgery, chemo and so on. You didn’t even think about it. “
In order to avoid similar fates, the celebrity expert appealed to viewers to regularly go to preventive care. «I always thought to myself: For God’s sake, now sit at the doctor for an hour for a check-up. I’m fine, I have nothing. ” And then suddenly the bang came.
When his doctor told him that the cancer might not have spread if the tumor had been recognized earlier, he thought: “What kind of idiot are you? You could have taken this lesson at the doctor’s. This is not really a lifetime that disappears. “
Tears on Sat.1- “Breakfast TV”
When the visibly moved Alina Merkau asked in a halting voice what people in such a situation would need, Benjamin Bieneck replied: “It was very important for me to be treated normally. I couldn’t stand it when people wrapped me in cotton wool. I’m in a shitty situation, we don’t have to make it worse. ” His environment helped him a lot during this difficult time.
Then the tears rolled down on the live broadcast. Merkau said with wet eyes: “Oh, Benj, that’s taking me differently than I thought. I’m so proud of you, you are doing so well. In the end, it’s so nice to see that you still have the same ben inside you. ” Daniel Boschmann also wiped a few tears away while thanking Bieneck for his courage and saying: “Dear viewers, this is an emotional moment.”
“I look like death on mountain pines”
Benjamin Bieneck also spoke up on Instagram and thanked his subscribers for their recovery wishes: “That made me very happy and very touching.” For ten days he had the results that the chemo had worked incredibly well and was therefore very happy.
“I still look a bit like death on slippers, but I’m actually fine,” he jokes and emphasized: “Don’t worry, in a few weeks I’ll hopefully have a little color on my face again and maybe a few more Hair.” (frk)
