Captain Rick:

I manage a WordPress blog for my friend Bill, who was diagnosed with stage 4 Merkel Cell Cancer and given 6 months to live. I convinced him to tell his story on a WordPress blog that I would create and manage for him. He agreed and has been relating his gripping story ever since. He has just completed his 6th round of chemo and reports great news of hope. I encourage you to follow Bill’s ‘C’ Word Journey on WordPress and offer your words of kindness and support.

Captain Rick: I was one of the millions glued to their TV sets back in the 80’s as Larry captivated the TV primetime audience as J. R. Ewing, the ruthless oil baron, in  “Dallas”, possibly the greatest TV series ever. He revealed his battle with throat cancer including radiation therapy and chemotherapy on an “Entertainment Tonight” in January, ahead of his second season of the new “Dallas” series on TNT. I don’t doubt that this will make for the “Dallas Cliffhanger” of all.

It is reported that co-stars Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy were by his side during his final moments at Medical City Hospital in Dallas.
