Ben Dudley Cause of death

Ben Dudley was regarded as having a friendly personality. Many people must be curious to know the Ben Dudley cause of death in light of the recent news.

On July 12, Ben Dudley, a 31-year-old from Gloucestershire, received a cancer diagnosis. The following day, on July 13, his first son, Ruben, was born. Mr. Dudley was getting positron emission tomography (PET) in another room when his wife Sally entered the maternity ward to be given the go-ahead for an induction. He had to wait to meet his kid until the radiation from the scan had left his body after the scan revealed that he did have cancer.

Mr.Dudley said at that time,

“I didn’t really think about what I had at that time because what was going on with Ruben was just so amazing,”

“Then very, very quickly I was just focused on beating it. There were some tears in hospital when they first said what it was but, from then on, I just wanted a treatment plan to beat it.

“Ruben came at an amazing time because it would have been more difficult to have been as positive without him around.

“Without him, the cancer would have been the focus and the main thing that was going on.

“It made it a lot more manageable because there was something else to focus on.

“After my diagnosis, the first time I saw my mum was after he was born, so we didn’t even talk about the cancer.”

Along with his wife Sally, Mr. Dudley followed a vegan diet while receiving treatment. After experiencing fatigue and night sweats for no obvious cause, Mr. Dudley went to the doctor. Sadly, none of the three chemotherapy treatments he had between August 2017 and January 2018 had any effect on the illness. The young father was misdiagnosed and had Hodgkin Lymphoma, it was discovered after a visit to a specialist in London and a second round of biopsy analysis.

Mr Dudley added:

“To have cancer and to go through the journey is not a great time.

“But you meet some incredible people along the way that are in similar situations to yourself and you hear about their journeys and their battles.

“It is not all bad. As long as you can guarantee coming through it, it isn’t a bad journey to go through because it give you a real sense of perspective, it gives you a huge sense of love and support – there is a huge amount of good in it to.”

“All of the time, I am just of the belief that I am getting closer to getting better – I just have to keep going.”
