Famous People with Cancer

SmallBruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner LRS-042442.jpg

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, the whip-smart CEO of Apple Inc., has been treated surgically for a rare form of pancreatic cancer, an islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. But he tried alternative treatments first.


Frank McCourt

Frank McCourt won the Pulitzer Prize for his luminous memoir 'Angela's Ashes,' but his fight with melanoma has been complicated by meningitis.

Olivia Newton-John

Star of the movie musical Grease found out she had breast cancer at age 44. She used Eastern and Western techniques to battle the illness.


Christina Applegate

Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 36, but was prepared for it because of her family history and a genetic test.


Kylie Minogue

Co-founder of Microsoft recovered from Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1983, and was recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2009.


Lynn Redgrave

Lynn Redgrave earned an OBE for her many services to drama, but she battled with bulimia and then breast cancer, too.


Michael Douglas

'Fatal Attraction' star Michael Douglas had a fatal attraction of his own-to cigarettes. And that may have led to the tumor in his throat that he's currently battling.
