Kevin Sheedy fights bowel cancer
Thursday 23 August 2012
Former Everton star Kevin Sheedy is optimistic of making a full recovery after being diagnosed with bowel cancer.
Sheedy, who is now the club's academy coach, will undergo surgery later this week.
The 52-year-old played 369 games for the Goodison Park side, winning two First Division titles and the FA Cup in the 1980s.
The former Republic of Ireland international said: "It's not ideal but I have to remain positive.
"There is a history in the family. It's so important that people don't ignore the early signs and symptoms and don't be afraid to consult a GP.
"After a period of rehabilitation I will return to my coaching role at Everton."
