Wife cancer 

One of the AFL’s most colourful figures has opened up about his wife’s shock cancer battle, revealing his suspicion around the timing of her diagnosis.

Megan Akermanis, wife of three-time Brisbane Lions AFL flag-winner Jason Akermanis, was “perfectly healthy” before she found a lump a month ago.

Two weeks later she had a double mastectomy after the shock breast cancer diagnosis.

With Megan now in recovery, Akermanis said his wife was “recovering well” but potentially needed further radiation therapy.

“It was really quick but could have been worse,” he said.

Akermanis told he was blown away by the courage of his wife who spent her 43rd birthday in hospital.

Noting that the diagnosis came as a shock to the otherwise healthy and active mother of three, Akermanis mentioned his suspicion about the timing of Megan’s discovery, wondering if the appearance of the lump could be related to her Covid vaccine.

There is no evidence to suggest vaccinated individuals are more susceptible to developing cancer.
