OSKAR LINDBLOM DISCOVERED CANCER AFTER GIRLFRIEND FORCED HIM TO VISIT HOSPITAL

After being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in the beginning of December last year, Oskar Lindblom recently cleared his treatment according to schedule, ringing the bell at Abramson Cancer Center in Philadelphia. If it wasn't for his girlfriend though, Lindblom may not have discovered the cancer in time.



In an interview with Swedish Sportexpressen, Lindblom speaks out on his treatment, how his life has been affected by Covid-19, but also how he reacted to finding out he had Ewing's sarcoma.

"I'm actually feeling good, but I still have to be careful and be calm for the coming two weeks before I can start living life again," he said.

In the interview, Lindblom stresses how grateful he is about the support he has received. Both from the hockey world and family, but especially his girlfriend Alma: "It has meant enormously much. My girlfriend Alma has carried a lot of weight, especially since the coronacrisis came in March and my family in Sweden couldn't come over anymore. But now that I've finished the treatment and live only ten minutes away from the hospital, she was able to go home this weekend. I can take care of myself now," he said.

It was also Alma who first made Lindblom visit the hospital. After discovering a weird bruise on his leg, Lindblom himself thought he had acquired it from an NHL game. Alma however, forced him to visit the hospital: "It turned out I had Ewing's sarcoma and then everything went fast. I'm really glad she forced me to go to the doctor."

In the interview, the Swedish forward says he hopes to be back training with the Flyers in a week or so, and upon being asked what his personal objectives are as of now, Lindblom appears to be quite clear: "To be back when next season starts, whenever that is. I'm feeling in decent shape now, so if I get a month or so more I hope to be ready."
