“I receive the best possible care from my clinicians and have the love, support and prayers of my family.”

Mr Molan will start treatment as soon as possible and vows to fight the disease.

“I have never been afraid to fight the battle to be fought and this is no exception,” he said.

The 70-year-old is undergoing further testing this week to determine the exact prognosis and best treatment plan.

Molan first entered politics in 2016 after a successful 16-year military career.

After retiring in 2008, he released a biography entitled Running the War in Iraq, detailing his experience as the Chief of Operations in Iraq between 2004 and 2005.

Despite announcing that he would be moving away from politics to focus on his physical health, Molan said his agency would remain committed to “ working on the issues that matter ” along with the Morrison administration.

Erin Molan has yet to make a public statement about her father’s diagnosis.

She previously discussed the couple’s close relationship during an interview with Stellar Magazine in 2020, crediting her rock-hard father for helping her early years as a television journalist, when she claims she was mercilessly cheated on.

After an attack by particularly nasty trolls attacked her on Twitter, she called her dad in hopes of a pep talk.

What she received instead was much more important.

‘I remember him saying,’ Were you shot by the infidel in Iraq? No, so make the f * ck louder. Who cares? “,” She recalled.
