Little strange not to give any indication of the type of cancer - that was more the case 30 or 40 years ago when the word was almost taboo. Obituaries would just say died "after a long illness". In more recent times, famous folks usually go the "raise awareness" route and give some detail. Hope that doesn't mean it is a type that would be readily identified as more virulent.
thanks to BBTF for the positive sentiments so far. I still find it mystifying why people care about some random political comment (or 10, or 1000) that an athlete makes, or even why one needs to tell the world about those sentiments, but it is what it is.
but the focus is on wishing the guy and his family well, and that's a relief to some of us who were cringing as we entered.... well done.

Kick it's ass, Curt.
Agreed. Grammatical error and all.
Oh c'mon Howie, nobody here is that callous.
I also want to concur that it is really odd that the type of cancer has not been disclosed.
Primey for 36.
Someone in my family was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer about a year ago...it is a nasty,nasty way to go.
I'm assuming, though, that treatment options & the like have improved somewhat in 3 decades. Surely.
