Wigan rugby league legend Brett Kenny admits he's shattered but ready to fight for his life after being diagnosed with cancer.

The 1985 Lance Todd Trophy victor will undergo chemotherapy next week although, according to friends, the full extent of the cancer is not known yet.

Kenny, 56, is set to undergo chemotherapy in the coming weeks.

"When I first got told it sort of knocked the hell out of me", Kenny told Seven News.

"Because I know once that starts we're well and truly on the way to trying to fix this and get rid of the cancer".

The lawsuit said United was negligent in the care and transportation of Simon and that the airline improperly cremated the rabbit. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages to cover the costs of the rabbit as well as punitive damages.

His diagnosis is the latest blow for Kenny and his family after stepson Riley Hilditch suffered a spinal injury after he landed headfirst in a creek confining him to a wheelchair.

"I've had a lot of people send messages and a lot of phone calls which has been great, " he said.

The legendary Eel made 17 appearances for both New South Wales and the Kangaroos was named in the list of Australia's 100 Greatest Players in a commision made by the NRL and AFL.

He was part of a golden era for Parramatta that won four premierships in the 1980's where he scored two tries in three grand finals from 1981 to 1983.

Kenny is widely regarded as one of the finest players to ever grace the 13-man code.
