Anna Woods : Britain's grandad is ill hope it's a speedy recovery, love u❤

Nathan Macgregor : I LOVE YOU STEPHEN FRY

Dr Verity Strange-Fish : Having been through similar myself, it seems at the very same time, I can empathise with you. You especially made me smile at the notion of certain people not being able to utter the 'C' word - 'The Big C', etc. It took me a few weeks to get my head around the surreal experience too - "I have how long? You mean I won't live forever?" But then I decided to force myself to joke about it, so my partner and I skirted around the issue by first mumbling about 'Cyril'. It wasn't long before I could say cancer after that, and before long it became almost a boast: "I have cancer you know!" Or, more shamelessly, "Can I just push in this queue please, I have cancer you know"... etc. Shocking, I know! But, what can you ultimately do but laugh at the little bugger, put it in its proper place and not let it get you down? Hope all goes well for you.

Edouard Deflandre : My God... This is bad news but cancer has never sounded funnier. Get well Stephen <3

molly may : a true icon, so brave for posting this! get well soon

Cat Gilfillan : Stephen Fry you are such a treasure to me and so many others. You have filled many moments of my life with laughter, brought me knowledge of subjects I'd never have thought existed and my world is undoubtedly a better place with you in it, even though we've never met. So get well soon please, be strong! Much love xxxxxxx

Edward Snowden : What a charming chap!! Oozes Charisma.

Richard Oakes : Dear Stephen. You are never boring. There is a myriad of us out there who care what happens to you. All the best with your recovery.

Marc Nicholas Graham : Such a lovely person. Big hug.

martyn spooner : The measure of the man. At a time when he is surely not at his best; to say the least; he takes the time and energy to consider other people who might also suffer a similar plight Can only admire the dignity and selflessness of the man. Get well soon Sir, am looking forward to seeing you back on our tv screens very soon.

stu crompton : Get well soon Stephen, the UK loves you.

Archisha Satyarthi : Wish you a speedy recovery, sir. Love and respect.

Helen Ellis : You are an extraordinary person who contributes to the betterment of humanity in unusually creative and diverse discourse. Perhaps it is time for you to give less to us and more to yourself. Best wishes and thank you.

ricaldos40 : Wow what a fright that must have been, You really are a National Treasure and I wish you well. I shall go to the Doc ASAP (Two week waiting list). At least you are out and about! I think that's my local Waterstones your in. So...Get well soon LOL ( lol still means "lots of love" right?)

Sunnyside Up : My absolute shock at the news Stephen just get well and so much love from South Africa 💋❤️🇿🇦

JordanRants : Hope you get better soon Stephen. Thoughts are with you.

8fox261 : Stephen, please get well soon. The world is a much more colorful, beautiful place because of you...

Nicole Borheier : I'm glad your husband is there for you. You are one of my favourite writers, get well soon! <3

Spear Carrier : You're strong, and it's obvious you're a survivor. And I'm glad you chose to share your story, to spread awareness of this type of big bad C. Thank you for being so brave. But remember this very important fact: I am very jealous of your bookshelves. ;-)

Brazilian Vegan : Wish you well and hope all goes well Fry!

Jammy Jam : Can't wait to see you back hosting shows and talks

Spencer Fine : Stephen, you are my absolute favorite person and I love you with all of my heart. Love to meet you, and I hope you are healthy and happy. -Spencer (fan for 10~ years from los angeles)

George Macnally : Thank you for the explanation and glad to see you are getting on the mend. I will myself get checked now. Take care Stephen

Ranty McRant-Pants : Mr Fry; always a legend.

Peter Finn : Thinking of you at this worrying time get well soon .

DidYouKnowGaming? : Full wishes for a speedy recovery. We are born and bred of Norwich with the wish to entertain while providing information to people, something that I feel was inspired by yourself. This is an important message, and I hope more men will be open to getting checked. It has always been taboo but I suppose it's messages such as this which may well make it a lot easier for us to talk about these problems and admit to them. If one thing cancer is good at, it's hiding away from discussions because of its nature. Perhaps going forward we can all reflect and be more open about it.

anton atkinson : one of my idols

braytown : I didn't think I could love this guy anymore, such a pragmatic and rational attitude. No fuss, no nonsense, went and sorted it and told everyone with little fuss after the fact. I hope it's gone and he lives many many more years, the world needs as many of his kind as possible.

Lokii655 : American Atheist here. Please dont leave us! Hitchens gone, Hawking passed(and that one really hurt) we need as many voices of reason as we can get in this world of willing ignorance and irrational hatred. We arent ready to lose another champion of thought.

Catherine Marchand : Pale blue ribbon for prostate cancer. Safe journey through this. We have been there and through proton radiation therapy and now through the last steps.

The Family Bovine : Honestly wishing you the best Steven. Much like us YouTubers big & small, we are always wishing to entertain despite how dire the situation is. There is a great stigma with being checked for this said illness, so it's utterly refreshing to see your storytelling make it feel easier for men to engage with. Thank you for inspiring us and being apart of many of our childhoods.

Pedro Aguiar : You will recover promptly, no doubt about it. All the best, sincerely!

Jasper Williamson : We'll all be listening to your magnificent impressions in the Harry Potter audiobooks and your quick wit on QI hoping that you make a full recovery. Get well soon mate x

Eric Reinholt : Sir, you have always entertained as well as educated whenever you speak, and I should have expected the same level of public spirit when you have an illness. You always have given happiness, and now you help the rest of us by encouraging attention to our health. Keep going! There are a great many of us who admire you and wish to see you continue. Thank you.

Louise Charlesworth : You're so delightfully English, properly English, a good ol' English bloke.

Science with Katie : This made me feel like my grandpa was about to tell me some bad news about his health. He's such an adorable old boy. So glad it was caught early. 💛

John O'Connor : I have had a high PSA level and because of it got the biopsies of my prostate, 12 samples taken. The result, high grade PIN. I have learned that they are just per-cancerous cells. So I have been for the past four years on what they call "watchful waiting". As a precaution versus another prostate biopsy I had, free of charge, an MRI scan and thank goodness it showed no abnormalities in my prostate. And my PSA level is back to normal too. From my readings about Prostate Cancer many of us live with it and more of us die of something else; we die with rather than of prostate cancer.

Lawrence Murphy : Many men die with Prostate Cancer not from it so there may be no need to panic if you have a diagnoses. The other issue with cancer and other chronic disease is that they are life style diseases caused mainly by an animal centric diet. If you wish to prevent cancer or further occurrences of it then you need to change your diet to a whole plant diet and avoid all animal products, processed food, salt and alcohol. If you fail to change then you are continuing to subject yourself to the conditions which allowed the cancer to develop and grow in the first place.

steve cross : Stephen. I am so pleased you caught it in time and are better. I wish you a long and very happy life. Fondest Regards.

UncleJams : Stephen, I want to thank you for this video. Well, because you are important to me and even though I don't know you personally, I have come to respect and admire you very much. I look forward to another video in fifteen years when you get your knee replaced. I send you my best regards and love, James, a stranger you don't know who cares about you. (one of millions)

The Lost History Channel TKTC : They got it early big chap, you are one of the "Lucky" ones, you are still here after all and i wish you a recovery to the best health that nature allows after such a procedure.. Enjoy every breath and live long my friend! Don't forget the jokes! Luv Ya!

Frankie Clifford : Glad to hear you are on the mend, keep well and continue to be your gorgeous self X F

Bolly Bickerton : Thank you Stephen for sharing. You raised mental health awareness, and probably helped more people than you'll ever know. Hopefully your message will inspire men to get checked. Be well. Xx

deborah adams : Best wishes for a full and lasting recovery Mr. Fry.

Bonnita Claus : Dear Mr. Fry, to me you are among the most important people in the world. I’ve come, over the years to become infatuated with you, the same way I am with Peter Ustinov, and a number other brilliant individuals, some of which I do not know their names, but their work I was given so much to the world. You still have so much to give the world, not only in entertainment other facets of civilization, or that which makes civilized. Please, take care of yourself and remember you are deeply loved. I am delighted and comforted, that you have the support of your husband, without whom your road to recovery would be made far more arduous.

CKHere : Whys this got nearly 1k dislikes?...

Christine Hastie : All the best for a full recovery, from one cancer survivor to another!

Caz Harrod : Sir Stephen Fry, we all love you you are the best person EVER! The only reason I actually went to school was due to the fact I wanted to understand your conversation on QI, Plus V for Vendetta was SO GOOOOODDD!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Paul Ivin : A massive well done for doing this vid, it stops all the media crap, get well Stephen, all the best, Paul 🌈🌈

Greg E. : And instead of a boring announcement he turns it into an enthralling story! The magic of Stephen Fry. Get well soon!
