Radio legend Don Imus announced this morning that he is battling Stage 2 prostate cancer. According to a bone scan, the cancer has not spread. The 68 year old shock jock seems to have a good attitude about his diagnosis, “I’ll be fine. If I’m not fine, I won’t be fine. It’s not a big deal. The prognosis couldn’t be better.”
Mr. Imus believes that with the help of his doctors, he will beat it.
Prostate cancer is usually treated with surgery and/or radiation. Approximately 200,000 men are diagnosed with this form of cancer every year.
Personally, I’m not a big fan of Don Imus, the radio host. But as a humanitarian, his “Imus Ranch” in New Mexico has helped countless kids battling their own life-threatening diseases. And, as a cancer survivor myself, I offer my support and prayers that he will beat this.
