Alessandro Baricco has leukemia, pain and the great gift of his sister Enrica

The writer told of being affected by a form of leukemia and having to undergo a transplant: the announcement on the Instagram channel of Alessandro Baricco

News that arrives like a bolt from the blue, the one concerning Alessandro Baricco, and that he wanted to give in first person. The author of Castelli di Rabbia and many other masterpieces has in fact discovered that he is suffering from a form of leukemia but is already awaiting an operation.

Shared pain, perhaps, is less heavy to bear. If the journey is long, then even the straw can become iron. And this is how Alessandro Baricco has decided to reveal to everyone that he is suffering from a form of leukemia that he is fighting with all his strength and that he intends to overcome. For this, he decided to undergo the transplant.

“Um, there is news to give – he wrote – and this time I have to give it myself, personally. It’s not that great, I warn you. What happened is that five months ago I was diagnosed with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia “.

And he added: “I was upset, but not that bad, come on. When you have such a disease the best thing you can do is have a blood stem cell transplant, which I will do in a couple of days (well, it’s not that simple, we’ve been working on it for months, it’s patience). My sister Enrica will give me the stem cells, a woman who in my eyes was already quite special before this adventure, let alone now “.

The announcement was accompanied by an image of his computer on a coffee table next to a hospital bed. With all the recovery time he needs and will be prescribed by his doctors, Alessandro Baricco will soon return to his readers. With all the spirit and passionate intelligence that entered everyone’s soul. It won’t be easy, of course, but with everyone’s affection the weight to carry will (perhaps) be a little lighter.

The importance of love

A harsh diagnosis, difficult to accept, one that shatters life into a thousand pieces. Yet, as we all know how to do, Alessandro Baricco also managed to find a foothold, a thread to cling to in order to face all the pain that awaits him: “Maybe, well, I still want to say that every moment I feel the good fortune of living all this with many true friends around, smart children, an irresistible life partner, and the best Bull since the Scudetto. These are things, the first three, that change your life. The fourth certainly does not spoil you. In short, I see it well “.

However, the writer wanted to maintain a point of contact with his audience and readers, whom he greeted with that touch of melancholy irony that characterizes the most painful goodbyes: “For a while, don’t count on me, but d on the other hand, don’t get used to it too much because the doctors who went into it to heal me have every air of being able to do it pretty quickly. Hugs, AB “.
