Govind Sandhu, a TikTok executive known for his role as Head of Global Music Partnerships, recently took to social media to share some heartbreaking news. Despite being in good health and completing a half marathon, he has been diagnosed with stage four cancer.

In an emotional video posted on Instagram, 38-year-old Govind revealed that he has stage four Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that starts in the lymphatic system.

He shared that his health started declining just a day after finishing the Sydney Half Marathon, when he noticed his knee was swollen. Initially, he thought it was a running injury, but soon he experienced severe body aches, sweats, and flu-like symptoms.

Govind’s health continued to deteriorate over a span of four weeks, prompting him to seek medical help. Multiple visits to the doctor, along with blood tests, scans, and biopsies, provided a clearer picture of his condition. The doctors also found some abnormalities near his pancreas and heart, though his heart seems to be okay for now.

Govind emphasized that cancer does not discriminate and urged everyone to get regular check-ups and not ignore any health issues. He plans to keep his followers updated on his progress, sharing both the highs and lows of his journey.
