maryleelou Posted August 9, 2005 Share Posted August 9, 2005 Hi All - After just losing Peter Jennings to LC, I read on the Internet that Dana Reeve was diagnosed with LC. Quotes from the article: "Based on the imminent release of a tabloid article regarding my personal health, my family and I have decided to release our own statement," Dana Reeve said Tuesday. "I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and am currently undergoing treatment. I have an excellent team of physicians and we are optimistic about my prognosis." "I hope before too long to be sharing news of my good health and recovery," Dana Reeve also said her statement. "Now, more than ever, I feel Chris with me as I face this challenge. As always, I look to him as the ultimate example of defying the odds with strength, courage, and hope in the face of life's adversities." Kathy Lewis, president and CEO of the Christopher Reeve Foundation, issued a separate statement in support of the advocate. "The thoughts and prayers of the entire Christopher Reeve Foundation team are with Dana and her loved ones during this difficult time," said Lewis. "We are certain that Dana will tackle this challenge with the grace, courage and determination that have become her hallmark." I pray for Dana and her family. From a disease I heard so little about until my best friend was diagnosed last year and re-diagnosed again this year, news of LC now seems to hit me from everywhere. Hopefully, the media coverage will help finance more research and an eventual cure. hugs to all, Mary Lou Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
