The Day That Changed My Life - This week in Cancer
This week we learned some big news about two champions who are facing cancer. First we heard the sad news about the former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier is now in hospice care. Mr. Frazier is said to have liver cancer and although there were rumors of his death, reports have not yet confirmed that he has passed away. However, it appears that the former champion is gravely ill.
Another champion is winner Ethan Zohn featured here The Survivor's Real Journey to Survive who is now facing the return of Hodgkins Lymphoma. Ethan Zohn winner of Survivor Africa shared his journey and was well on his road through remission when it all came back.
However, while Ethan is facing Hodgkins Lymphoma head on even participating in the 2011 New York City Marathon, Joe Frazier is in the final stages of cancer. We are keeping them both and their family in our thoughts and prayers.
I would also like to add that singer Andy Williams has shared that he is undergoing treatment for bladder cancer. At 83 years old, Mr. Williams plans to continue to perform in 2012. We love that spirit and we are cheering him on as he undergoes treatment for his cancer.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
