Gibb, 62, was diagnosed last year, and Dwina took charge. Though it seems that Gibb was treated with conventional medicine by doctors, Dwina was also looking into alternative therapies.

Whether a spider or other conventional treatment helped Gibb, it seems like he’s in good shape and ready to make music again.
“I could not have done it without Dwina. She has never left my side and is a wonderful person. I am beating cancer and can't wait to carry on with my work,” Gibb told the Sunday Mirror.
A native of Co. Tyrone, Dwina Murphy Gibb is a bisexual writer, artist, playwright, ordained Druid priestess, lover of Irish history and owner of two Irish wolfhounds. She and Robin have been married since 1985 and have one son.
