Richard "Wildman" Wildman has been an innocent institution ever since he started working here (and especially after his legendary performance in the panto at our Christmas party.) So we were stunned to find out that Rich has been diagnosed with cancer (a form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, which is a form of cancer of the lymphatic system).
In true Wildman style, he has met his illness head on. For one thing, he has created an alter ego – Chemo Man (pictured above). You can buy Chemo Man t-shirts, beer mugs and other gear right here. Rich is also blogging the ups and downs of his treatment - definitely worth a read.
It was tough to know whether this post was relevant to our blog, and tough to write about something that's very personal for Rich and his family. But Rich was up for us talking about his exploits and linking to his blog (he's up for having a few more readers), and we hope that all innocent drinkers and blog visitors join us in giving Rich plenty of support for the rest of his treatment, which he's halfway through.
