Famous People with Cancer

SmallBruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner LRS-042442.jpg

Bruce Paltrow

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

Minogue was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37, and said that undergoing chemotherapy was like "experiencing a nuclear bomb."

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.

22 Aug 2012 I was on Sutent for approximateley 1 year with dosage changes due to side effects and was working and stable for 8 months then some changes were noticed in followup CT and MRI scans. Sutent either stopped working or I became resistant. Developed a brain tumor on outside of the brain core causing a seizure. Hospitalized to surgically resect the tumor. Also developed 2 tumors in my spine treated with stereotactioc radiosurgery. Now on Afinitor for 6 months seams to be keeping some existing small tumors stable.

01 Nov 2011 Stage 4 RCC diagnosed 2006. Failed nephrectomy, kidney embolised ok. Interferon, then temsorolemus, neither particularly effective, metastasised to lung. 37.5mg sunitinib daily, very effective, shrinkage then stable. Initially sore mouth, finger tips, diarrhoea, heart burn, fatigue, occasional vomiting. Side effects died away, now just some diarrhoea, fatigue. Work 5 days a week, no problem, good weight and appetite. Some short term memory loss (maybe age? 56). Very pleased with drug, life saver.

15 Sep 2010 Stage 4 RCC Left kidney removed in Oct 2008. Metastasized to stomach cavity 2010. Treated with Sutent since early June 2010. Side effects unusual but not out of the ordinary based on info Ive read. As of today It seems to be helping but probably to soon to tell for sure. I feel fairly well and have been working right along so thats a positive. Attitude is good as well as support from those around me.
