Port Adelaide premiership-winning coach Mark Williams has been diagnosed with Lymphoma.
Williams, currently an assistant at Richmond, has lymphoma, a form of blood cancer.
The 56-year-old noticed a lump in his neck last week and underwent test which confirmed the diagnosis.
Richmond confirmed the news in a statement, and said the club would do all it could to assist Williams.
As we always do at Richmond, we’ll support Mark and his family during this time,” Richmond’s general manager of football Dan Richardson said.
The Tigers said Williams would begin his treatment shortly, and will continue in his role at the club.
Williams won the 2004 premiership as coach of Port Adelaide, and the Power expressed its best wishes.
T”he Williams family name is synonymous with Port Adelaide and ‘Choco’ is loved and revered by so many of our supporters, past players, volunteers, staff and administrators,” Port Adelaide chief executive Keith Thomas said.
“Only a few weeks ago he returned to the club to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our first AFL premiership and as always he stole the show.
“On behalf of the entire Port Adelaide community we wish him well in his treatment.”
