I have just been reading about Andy Williams and thought I'd see if we had any info on him. He doesn't seem to have a thread yet but I noticed Windsor had him as one of his picks in his footer so I suppose his health issues are already well-known.

According to his Wiki page, which cites Fox News, "On Friday, November 4, 2011, it was reported in the press that Williams has been diagnosed with bladder cancer. He is undergoing chemotherapy treatments in Houston and will then move with his wife to a rented home in Malibu, California to be closer to cancer specialists in the Los Angeles area."


Any news since then? What is the survival rate for bladder cancer?

LOL - found this while researching for this thread:


"Andy Williams: 'People assume I'm dead'"

"As for groupies and drugs, Williams cedes that he "didn't reject all the offers that came my way" and dabbled briefly with cocaine and marijuana. "I had more of a drinking problem. I wasn't an alcoholic but there were times when I was drinking and partying too much."

I think Andy Williams might last a couple more years yet he seems to still have the desire to keep going and living .

bladder cancer is not the worst type of cancer either.

Not the worst type. But if not treated early enough, it could spread to other vital organs.

Sounds like a matter of days rather than months , if he lives though this year he is a cert for 2013 I think.

Apparently the reports of his poor health are inaccurate. Such articles always seem to be released just before the subject matter dies. It's only a matter of time before I get my 5th hit of the year.

And that news report was from a local paper in Branson. Missouri. Which is probably the equivalent to Eastbourne.

Damn shame. I remember watching his TV show in the 60's - 70's. He was always being visited by a bear looking for cookies. Well, to a mere kid at the time, it was funny.

Sad to see him go. Although on the plus side. That's my 8th DDP hit of the year. Not that I'm a likely contender to win, but I think I'm doing damn good for my debut year.

This is as close as I'll get; the remaining nine laggards all seem well enough and DDT has three of the same picks. So my fate lies in the unlikely hands of Clerides, Funicello, Ginsburg, Jaruzelski, O'Connor and (DDT's own red herring, swallowed hook line and sinker like Drew Carey before him) David Cobham.

why, you little...
