Marie’s fainting caused by a brain tumor
STOCKHOLM - In an official press release sent to various media outlets including The Daily Roxette, Roxette's manager reports that doctors have found a small tumor in the back of Marie's head which probably caused her fainting episode earlier this week. The doctors will perform more tests before proper treatment can be determined.
"[It's] clear that Marie Fredriksson will have to cancel her commitments for near future," manager Marie Dimberg says.
The press release was sent out to help ease the intense pressure on Dimberg and others for information regarding Fredriksson's health. Here is the entire text:
On September 11, Marie Fredriksson fainted in her home in Stockholm and was taken to hospital. The fall caused a serious concussion and Marie has been hospitalized ever since. Several tests and X-rays have been performed in order to establish what caused her fainting.
The results of these tests now show that Marie has a small tumour in the back of her head. More tests have to be performed before proper treatment can be determined. Information will be given when information is available and of course we are hoping for a positive process.
It is however clear that Marie Fredriksson will have to cancel her commitments for near future. Marie is currently at home and under the circumstances in good spirits but it is of course a delicate procedure that lies ahead. On behalf of Marie and her family we kindly ask for respect of their privacy so that Marie, with the support of friends and family can proceed with her treatment and quick recovery.
