Roger Ebert Shout Out

I vaguely remember hearing about Roger Ebert getting cancer a while back, but admittedly I haven’t been keeping tabs on him. I just came across this article tonight with an update and I have to admit I’m completely impressed with this guy. He refuses to hide because he’s sick and doesn’t look good. The cancer spread to his jaw and they had to remove portions of it, and they had complications. He ended up getting a tracheostomy and now can’t speak. I feel for the guy, but he is in remarkably good spirits. What an inspiration. I love his big F-U to the media, too!

    Good for him! My grandma died of oral cancer last month, and underwent a lot of the same treatment he did, and was extremely self conscious about how her face had changed.

    Aww, I’m sorry to hear about your grandma. :-(
