Jorien “Sheever” van der Heijden, one of Dota 2‘s most prominent casters and streaming personalities, revealed earlier today on her Twitch channel that she has cancer and will start undergoing treatment for it later this week.

“Well I have breast cancer,” she told her viewers during her daily Dota 2 stream. “It hasn’t spread. It will take a while to recover from it. Starting on chemo on Thursday and yea that will take a while.”

She added that she’ll be heading to the hospital with her brother and undergoing Cold Cap treatment to try and prevent the loss of hair that can result from chemotherapy.

Originally from the Netherlands, Sheever began her casting career with GosuGamers in 2012 before moving on to work independently as an analyst and caster for some of the game’s biggest events, including Starladder, Valve-sponsored Majors, and The Internationals. As a result of her treatment, Sheever said she would miss the Manilla Masters tournament later this month as well as the next few weeks of DreamLeague.

She played various games while she was young but never did spend that much of her free time on them. Until one of her sisters got the game Warcraft III (later also the Frozen Throne expansion) and after playing the campaign they discovered the world of Battle.net.

They started playing a lot of tower defense, and later also a lot of DotA until World of Warcraft came out.  It took her 2 years to reach hardcore raiding but ended up doing so for 4 years, of which 3,5 years with the same high-end raiding guild. She quit before T13 at the end of November but was still used to gaming at least 5 nights a week.
