Stan Walker is on the mend after he had his stomach removed as a result of his cancer battle! Stan had filmed his recovery following the life-saving surgery! The emotion documentary aired on Sunday night.

Stan Walker has also written a heartbreaking letter about his journey, the hardest parts and his overall battle with cancer!

"The cancer was the easiest part. The deadliest, but the easiest," he wrote.

"People will say, 'I knew it. He has cancer'. But I don't have cancer anymore. This weight loss, I wish it was from cancer and it was that simple. I lost 20kg from a gallbladder issue."

"The complications have been worse than the actual surgery. It's been full on, but not in the way that you'd think," he continued.

"To be honest, I wasn't shocked. I know no one's destined to have cancer, no one's destined to get sick and die. This is a gene, things just happen. But I always felt like it was going to happen."

"I felt like I was going to go through anything and everything that could go wrong, but there's going to be a purpose. I just didn't know everything that was going to happen," he admitted.

"Throughout my life, I've wanted to die so many times. I tried to commit suicide when I was a kid and even as an adult, things get too overwhelming," he shared.

"That's why I like talking about that stuff – people think it just ends when you get successful, but it just gets worse."

"You're an adult now, you're more developed, there's more pressure, you know more things and you get overwhelmed by things," he added.

"But thinking about the number of times I wanted to be right there in that position, in the moment, when I almost died, now, I was fighting for my life."
