Yeah .... even 25 years ago when my mum was diagnosed with it, the survival rate was 80%.  She was in the 20% though.  :(

 

 

That's horrible - my sympathies go with those expressed above

Thanks - yes, it was particularly cruel as she had had really bad reactions to the chemo, then halfway through the course they did a scan which showed that the tumour had already shrunk to a fifth of its size.  Much celebration, then the same night she found a little sore on her waist.  It was a secondary cancer and two weeks later she was dead.

That's what lymphoma can do, folks.

Fucking hell, the sellers of life insurance are dying out quicker than they can film new adverts. We'll have Sun Life plugged by Skepta and Jessie J at this rate.

Not sure if he passes the fame threshold, but watching 'Randall and Hopkirk Deceased' I note that Kenneth Cope will be 90 next year. Ironic that he played the ghost when his co-star Mike Pratt succumbed to cancer as long ago as 1976.

Definitely hits the fame threshold though some of the more international posters may disagree.

Cope also has had COPD for yearscand to be honest with you, I'm surprised he's still alive.

Annette Andre (Marty Hopkirks wife) is 81.  Just thought I'd throw that in.

Former BBC War Correspondent turned Independent MP Martin Bell looks absolutely awful on Celebrity Pointless plus he is unable to stand.

Plus the show would have been filmed at the beginning of the year at the very latest. He may be even worse now!

Jeff Bridges and Arnold Schwarzengger in 2021?

If that happens, than my childhood has officially died once and for all.  They are like the last two vestiges of my innocent childhood.  lol

Aww talking pictures did a sitdown with William Russell taped earlier this year. I was aware from fandom that he's starting to show his age but he's got the old person slurred speech now and has four layers of clothing on. Age comes to us all. Still chatty mind you. Very dl worthy in my book.

 

Edit - went looking up the recording date as there's an audience. November 2018. He's more chatty here than now, apparently.

Worth noting that Scottish folk singer Jock Duncan is still alive. Turning 96 next year.

I don't think he's on the radar for many due to the lack of Wikipedia page but certainly notable and likely to obit.

Picked in the DDP about a decade ago. I assumed he had died, but apparently not.

January will mark 10 years since the great Jack LaLanne died, aged 96. Something which I'm still pissed off about because I'm a great believer in his way of living, and I think he could've gone on for another 5-10 years had pneumonia not come at him as hard and fast as it did. (I know, I know... shoulda could woulda... not how life works out!)

Anways...

His widow, Elaine "LaLa" LaLanne will be 95 in March. Still going strong, seems very lively and works out daily.

Famous in her own right as a fitness guru. I can see her getting a qualifying obit in the form of the Mail Online at the very least.

Interview here from a couple of months ago:

Iirc Lalanne was another victim of the curse of deathlist. Someone here, not me, declared he could live to 100, less than a week before he died.
