Apparently he first had prostate cancer in 2001 and was a long term survivor.Since this is the Berkshire board, and one particular member of our non-diverse board also has this condition, it bears pointing out that over 90% of people who get a diagnosis of prostate cancer will still be alive 10 years later, so this kind of survival (2001-2013) is nothing exceptional. People that have early stage cancer that is blasted by radiation probably have even better survival, and if the diagnosis is made at the age of 82, it probably has a negligible effect on life expectancy, whether it is treated or not.Regards, DTM
