Sam Neill is being treated for stage 3 leukemia, but is now in remission.

The 75-year-old Actor, best known for his role as Dr. Alan Grant in the Jurassic ParkHe announced his battle with cancer in a new memoir due to be published on Tuesday, March 21.

according to WatchmanNeil was diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma shortly after the publicity tour for Jurassic World Dominion last year. After initial attempts at chemotherapy were unsuccessful, Neil began taking a new chemotherapy drug that he would continue to receive monthly for the rest of his life. As of now, Neil is cancer free.

“I can’t pretend the past year hasn’t had dark moments,” said Neil. Watchman. “But those dark moments shine a light in sharp relief, you know, and make me so grateful for each day and so grateful for all my friends. Just glad to be alive.”

Neil began writing the book, titled Have I told you this before?, while undergoing treatment. “I found myself having nothing to do,” Neil explained Watchman. “And I’m used to working. I love working. I love going to work. I love being with people every day and enjoying human company and friendship and all that stuff. And all of a sudden I’m denied that. And I thought, ‘What am I going to do?'”

“I never had any intention of writing a book. But as I went on and kept writing, I realized that it was kind of giving me a reason to live and that I would go to bed thinking, ‘I’ll write about that tomorrow…it’s going to amuse me.'” And so it was really a lifesaver, because I couldn’t get through without doing something, you know.”
