Well, that's intriguing.  Wonder what was wrong with him.

That's like something off a Victorian death certificate. 

Just seems odd to be evasive about the actual illness, given that he was a doctor himself and they go into such detail about his specialisations.

Seems obvious to me.

 

He got chills, they're multiplying.

" People have this preconceived notion that cancer is a death sentence, but you can now live with it like a chronic illness. I’m lucky and I take a lot of medicinal cannabis and I’m doing great. "

 

from her interview in the Telegraph today

She is lucky, as it certainly doesn't work for everybody.  :(

The bit they left out of that interview:

 

"I now think my seventies recordings highly commercial and basically bland and I wish I'd jammed with the Grateful Dead when I had the chance!"

No clue if this is a new interview (simply can't be bothered to read any of the previous), but should mention that she is also recovering from a broken sacrum caused by her cancer, which has yet to be mentioned here.

Thanks for posting; that was a good watch.  She's a wonderful lady, and it's going to suck big-time when she goes.  Maybe she can pull a Valerie Harper and live for much longer than people expect.

Yes, she does seem like a nice person.

 

She already has done fairly well, lasting 6 years with stage 4 breast cancer.  It probably won't become immediately life-threatening until it's in a vital organ (assuming it isn't, already), though she is looking skinny.

I don't think it became Stage 4 cancer until 2017.  I believe she revealed she's been battling cancer (again) since 2013, but that it metastasized in 2017 and spread to her bones at that time.
