I don’t recall having heard of the disease, a cancer of the blood, before Doug became ill. Yet Roy Scheider recently died from it; a little research shows that Peter Boyle, Ann Landers, Louis Rukeyser, and Mark Lenard also died from it. Geraldine Ferraro is in remission.
I saw Doug a few weeks ago and he was back in the office looking great. But he’s not out of the woods yet, as his blog update notes.
