The former Australian football player Peter Bosustow, famously known for his aerial shots has been diagnosed with rectal cancer.

Time and again, Peter is remembered as Perth's youngest surviving premiership player and a remarkable Blues flag-winner.

Bosustow got a hip replacement and surgery to improve the pace and rhythm of his heart earlier in 2011. From that instance, he has suggested that all the AFL newcomers take care of their bodies and not over-follow the limelight.

The champ retired from football in 1984 after rejoining Perth, where he played 141 games and was a part of two grand finals in 1976 and 1977. In Perth's Team of the Century, Peter Bosustow was picked on the half-forward flank for a decade (1899-1999).

Does Peter Bosustow Have Cancer?


Yes, Peter Bosustow confirmed that he was diagnosed with cancer in August 2021. 

It was around Christmas when he first experienced health issues including losing weight. While he took the loss of weight as a good sign, Peter was shocked to see the result of his colonoscopy which showed a mass.

When tested further, it revealed spots on his liver as well which meant that cancer has spread up to the liver. Bosustow knew since then that it would be a fight for him.

Peter's father, Bob who was also a 20-game Carlton player in 1955 and 1956 died at the age of 63, losing his life to Leukemia in December 1997.

Peter Bosustow's Health Condition And Sick Phase


Peter Bosustow has been doing his chemo treatment in the past months as he was told that without chemotherapy, he would not live longer than 12 months, at the time he was diagnosed.

As Blues' flamboyant premiership player has disclosed that he has been diagnosed with rectal cancer that has already spread to his liver, the unfortunate news had made millions of his fans pray for his health.

During his health battle, several other Carlton greats showed their support for Bosustow as he is dealing with a life-threatening illness.

For instance, Alex Jesaulenko used his daughter's My Cause crowdfunding website which had already raised $6300 a year ago.
