    Following up on a thread earlier this week...

    He just told Lieberman that he has metastasized colon cancer which has spread to liver, kidneys, stomach, lymph nodes and maybe brain. He said the doctors wouldn't even use the word cure-- that he may have 3-6 months and sometimes miracles happen. It has been 5 months since diagnosis. The whole interview sounded like a eulogy-- what will his legacy be, etc. It felt like a farewell...

    I know he is not that popular here, but he has done great work for animals, real work, not like others who claim to love animoes.

    He said nice things about Howard too...damn.

    I recommend you try to catch it on replay or perhaps someone can post it.

    Heard everything EXCEPT what he said the illness was so thanks for posting. It really did sound bad. How does something get so advanced without a person going to the doctor??

    I guess if you're going to get a cancer that can't be treated it may as well be a quick killer. I'd rather die quickly than slow and painfully.

    Wow, that is horrible. Did he have routine colonoscopy's. Most wealthy people are real diligent in having routine medical tests. They don't have to wait for appointments and have the tests done in private surgical facilities. Even having polyps removed is no guarantee that you won't develop colon cancer. The polyps can grow real fast in certain people and you can go from having no visible polyps to cancer in less than three years. It was stated that he was a smoker but he was a vegan also. I don't when he became vegan but obviously not eating red meat or animal products can greatly reduce the chance of getting polyps and eventually colon cancer. Some people have the cancer gene in them and there is nothing you can do.

    He said he had been feeling sick for a few years and tried to self-treat by taking anti-depressants and trying to raise his testosterone. He finally went to the doctor and was originally misdiagnosed, so that when he finally got the tight diagnosis it was far gone. It started with nausea.

    That's awful. Have a close friend who has the exact same condition. Just keeping her comfortable. Zero chance

    It seems like being vegan has really paid off for him and Robin.

    Sorry to hear about this - sounds like even Dr. Sarno couldn't help Sam at this point.

    I still don't understand. When you have this guy's money you have your choice of the best doctors and hospitals available. Have no idea how you can be misdiagnosed when you have a colonoscopy unless the tumor is hidden. Some people just don't want to be tested or think they can resolve their medical issues with their own cures.
