Fans seriously worried about Mark Pilgrim

Mark Pilgrim hasn’t provided a health update in seven days as fans grow increasingly worried over the well-being of the much-loved radio presenter. Prior to the last week, 53-year-old Hot102.7fm DJ had provided regular social media updates as he continues his brave battle against cancer.

As reported by The South African website, Pilgrim has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which he revealed in June 2022 had spread to his femur, the base of his spine and lymph nodes. Pilgrim’s social media timeline was flooded with messages of encouragement after his most recent post – on Tuesday, 24 January 2023 – revealed he was back in hospital for yet another procedure. The latest update was of particular concern to many as it showed Pilgrim looking skinnier than before and it prompted fans and local celebrities to wish him a speedy recovery.
