Speaking of how strong his mother is, Russell said, “She’s had cancer six times, she’d only finished chemo a month before the crash, so she’s still sort of having to go for regular checks and that.”

He added, “The woman wants to live, she’s full of spirit!”

Russell made the decision just after the accident, to cancel the remainder of his tour, to be with his mother.
