A note from The Australian’s Matt Price, sent to News Ltd colleagues:

A couple of weeks back I returned from Canberra with low energy levels. Then last week – and this is perverse – I noticed my left side slightly awry writing a story on Chris Mainwaring. A trip to the GP and a CT scan proved devastating. I have several brain tumours and will undergo exploratory brain surgery on Wednesday.

There is no sugar coating this – it’s dangerous and serious. Telling the three kids has been horrific. I am distraught at the prospect of introducing cancer into their innocent teenage lives. We are entering a long dark tunnel with no guarantees.

Best of luck to Matt, his wife and their children.
