If you are like me you must read hundreds of headlines a day, so you tend to skim over them looking for something interesting. It was quite a shock when I saw the headline that Michael C Hall of Dexter fame has cancer. In a statement released yesterday through his spokesperson, Hall said, "I feel fortunate to have been diagnosed with an imminently treatable and curable condition, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their expertise and care." All cancer is terrible, but at least the form of cancer he has is not only treatable but also curable.
Hall is suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body's immune system. The cancer is currently in remission. That's great news. Oh, and they also managed to say that the fifth season of the show would start filming later this year. Always have to get that plug in don't they.
