He was able to be candid about his struggles to Robin as she is a cancer survivor herself. Alex said:

I’m used to dealing with pain, but what I’m not used to dealing with is the surges that come on suddenly of deep, deep sadness and it brings tears to my eyes. I feel so weak all the time, and that’s not a good place to be. 

He has well-wishers 

Olivia Newton-John is amid her own cancer battle. Right after Alex shared his illness with the world, she came forward to give him strength. The classic singer advised him to ignore the statistics and only focus on healing himself.
