    Sir Bobby Robson

    Sorry if this already has a thread, but I could find it, so... From the Daily Mirror 6 May 2006 BOBBY IN CANCER BATTLE NUMBER 3 By Allison Martin FORMER England manager Sir Bobby Robson is battling cancer for the third time, it emerged last night. The 73-year-old had surgery this week to remove a lung tumour. Doctors spotted the growth when he went for an X-ray after injuring ribs during a skiing accident in France. His spokesman said: "He is convalescing and looking forward to getting back to his commitments." The ex-Newcastle United boss was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 1992. Three years later specialists found he had a rare form of mouth cancer and gave him just 18 months to live. He was told to give up his job but battled on and was back at work within three months. Sir Bobby has been treated at the Freeman hospital in Newcastle - which specialises in lung transplants - for his latest tumour. He is recovering at home in County Durham. He has been working as consultant to the Republic of Ireland team since January. Manager Steve Staunton said: "Knowing him as I do he'll be back fighting fit in no time."

    Wendy Wasserstein

    Award-Winning Playwright Wendy Wasserstein Reportedly Gravely Ill. http://www.broadway.com/gen/Buzz_Story.aspx?ci=522061 She doesn't strike me as overly famous, but did win the Pulitzer Prize, amongst a whole string of other gongs, in 1989. Would be worth a consideration perhaps? DWB

    Mary Travers

    OK, OK, I know what you are going to say - "She isn't famous enough!" But I think she may just sneak in being a member of the well-known 60s group Peter, Paul and Mary. WDYT? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/t...dio/4077751.stm Better make your mind up quick by the looks of it though! DWB

    Iain Cuthbertson

    Anybody heard how he is health-wise? Born in 1930 he's getting on a bit now.

    Dominick Dunne

    Thought I would start a thread on Dominick Dunne as I can't seem to find an existing one. Dunne is 83 years old and suffering from bladder cancer. He is a writer and investigative journalist. There was an article published recently where he said that the 2009 Oscars would probably be the last ones he'll see. It was also a Times source, so it looks like he will get a proper obit when he pops his clogs. I think there is a possibility that he may last into next year as he is still attending functions. He is, however, on my DDP...

    Washington Journalist Bob Novak has announced that he has a brain tumour. I'll post a link once one becomes available

    Corazon Aquino

    Corazon Aquino, the first female president of the Philippines from 1986 - 1992 was diagnosed with colon cancer back in March. She has made an appearance on DL back in 1990 and some articles indicate that she is responding well to chemotherepy. On my radar it might only be a matter of time before she becomes a statistic. I think she is a top priority for DL 2009.

    Edmund Hillary

    I'm from New Zealand - stick Sir Edmund Hillary back up for next year, let's just hope he holds out until then! Also, what about Nelson Mandela?

    Jack Cardiff

    Veteran cinematographer who will be 92 next September. His career goes back to the silent days. He even worked on the lond lost 1931 version of The Ghost Train, staring Jack Hulbert. A true ancient relic from a long vanished era. His son has been charged with paedophilia for the umpteenth time so he could do a Ronnie Barker?

    Hua He?

    Anybody know if Hua Guofeng is still around? Born 1921, took over from Mao Tse-Tung as head of China, before being out-manoevred politically by Den Xiaoping. So I've read.

    Natasha Richardson

    It seems Natasha Richardson might be attempting a late coup here. Though as she's not a hideous, racist old slapper, even serious head injuries might not be good enough http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7947826.stm [moved to new topic]
  18. Anyone heard Paul Harvey lately? His voice isn't sounding too good. He might be a choice for the 2006 list, providing he is popular enough outside of USA.

    Helio Gracie

    Is there a forum for Jiu-Jitsu legends? Anyway, Jiu-Jitsu legend Helio Gracie has passed away aged 95. He was widely regarded as the father of Vale Tudo. Very sad news.

    Reg Gutteridge is knocking on a bit. Old tin leg may well be moving towards his final round.

    Sir John Mortimer

    Mentioned regularly in 2008, possible 2009 candidate (we all know how the DL loves old white British fellows), and deserving of own thread. BBC Four has a Morty Night scheduled for mid-January, so maybe they know something we don't. Includes the Play for Today which featured the original incarnation of Rumpole, A Voyage Round My Father and a new documentary summing up his life and career. If this thread reaches a second page before his death I'll be surprised - not too much hot gossip going on in the world of SJM.
