RandyW Posted December 22, 2006 Share Posted December 22, 2006 Update on Benny Parsons. I know ther e are some here that follow this celebrities Battle With Lung Cancer. Benny Parsons Battling Lung Damage, Breathing Difficuly: Benny Parsons is dealing with a complication stemming from his battle with cancer earlier this year. Parsons missed NASCAR’s postseason activities in New York after having breathing difficulty. His doctors performed a scan of Parson’s entire body and found no cancer. However, the original tumor found in his left lung was large and the radiation used to treat it was so extensive that the lung is now damaged and not functioning properly. Parsons’ right lung is healthy and strong, and doctors believe Parsons’ body will eventually adjust to having just one healthy lung. But until then, the former Winston Cup Series champion driver will need to use oxygen to assist his breathing.(Charlotte Observer)(12-15-2006) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
