We are just about sick and tired of hearing about this disease and our prayer is that a cure will be found soon for cancer.
A story in today’s Observer list former Cabinet minister, state minister and member of parliament Donald Barrington Buchanan as the latest person battling the disease. He is fighting colon cancer.
Looking like former Cuban President Fidel Castro these days, Buchanan, 68, affectionately called ‘Danny Buck’, vows that he will put up a valiant fight against the disease, as his father before him did for 28 years.
BUCHANAN… I anticipate that, God willing, I will be around for a while
“I am sick… I am a very sick man,” Buchanan, a four-term MP for South West St Elizabeth, revealed in an interview with the paper.
“I have cancer of the colon. The doctors diagnosed a stage three tumour in June of this year. Prior to that I had started noticing a loss of weight and that might have gone on for about a year before we actually did the test that led to the conclusion that I was suffering from colon cancer,” he said.
Yardflex sends our best and hopes he will beat this thing.
