'He's very strong willed': Robin Gibb fights for his life as he has intense chemotherapy… but refuses to give up charity work

He has just undergone an intensive eight-week course of chemotherapy to battle his liver cancer.

But despite being left feeling drained and fragile by the treatment, Robin Gibb has vowed to overcome the disease – and carry on with his charity work.

The Bee Gee was admitted to hospital two months ago to be treated for an aggressive form of liver cancer.

But the 62-year-old has been allowed home on several occasions to see family and friends.

Speaking to The Mirror, a friend of the pop legend said: 'He’s very strong willed – if anyone can beat this it’s Robin.'

And despite being forced to pull out of a charity music event last Wednesday because he was too ill to attend, he has vowed not to give up his charity work.

Robin was left upset after he was forced to miss the fundraising event for music
project Rock The House.

His old friend and spokesman Mick Garbutt told fans that he was in the best hands and said: 'He
would have absolutely loved to be here in person, but unfortunately that
simply hasn’t been possible with his health.

'It is true to say he is very unwell, but he’s an incredible man and enjoys lots of support from his close circle of friends and family, and particularly from his wife Dwina.

'While he can still use his profile to raise awareness for issues close to his heart he will always do so.'

Robin and his son Robin-John, finished his first ever classical piece, The Titanic Requiem, which will be performed in Apruil by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ill-fated liner.

Mick added: 'He has set himself a goal to be at the gala performance of his first classical composition in April and everybody around him hopes that he will be there.'

Robin said last year: 'It has been an incredible experience working on this album and with RJ has been a driving force.'
