Mansfield took to Facebook and shared the heartbreaking news to his 84 000 followers. He informed them that he had terminal cancer.

In his post, he wrote: I have had it confirmed by the special surgeon leading everyone in the team looking after me that my cancer is confirmed stage 4, terminal and is now only subject to palliative care.

He went on to say his medical team will guide him through how to have as much fun in the time that he is left with and fulfil as many dreams, big and small that he has in his bucket list.

Mansfield also suffered from leukaemia about 13 years ago as now he is facing the terminal cancer.

In media, he has worked with various media outlets which includes, Primedia, Supersport and the award-winning community radio station, Hot 91.9 FM and he is considered as one of the best behind the mic.

In February this year, Mansfield announced that he was leaving Hot 91.9 FM to focus on his health and spending more time on the Mansfield Family Trust and the charitable work it does in South Africa.

His fans shared a heartbreaking messages as they wished things could be turned otherwise, sadly he is having a terminal disease.
