Sad news. Is it me or is there an unusual number of people falling ill or dying before their time lately? :(

Does seem to be a bit of a dicey age category when folk hit their 50s and 60s.

Hopefully Lynda has caught this early and can now get on with her treatment swiftly.

Oh no. I like Lynda and wish her well. Hope it's a highly treatable one and that she makes a full recovery.

I'm worrying about my mum more the closer she gets to her 60s, for sure.

I hope Lynda will come through this. Terrible situation for anyone to have to go through.

Blimey! Another one who has cancer. Quite a few celebrities seem to be catching this disease, or whatever.

How very tactful, you sound.

Lost my Dad to cancer at the age of 46 when I was 17, or whatever. :rolleyes:


Get well soon, Lynda.

CELT1987 16-07-2013 18:17

Cancer can strike anyone at any age.

All the best Lynda.

You don't "catch" cancer you develop it. I don't know if you realise how insensitive you sound in this comment?

Have to admit, I did a double-take at that comment too. While I made an observation of my own about an unusual number of people falling ill at the moment, I hope it comes across with much more decency than zx50's comment, which sounds really awful even if that wasn't the intention.

Scaremongering a bit? Anyone can get it at any age.

milliejo 16-07-2013 21:54

She is a very, talented actress...hope she gets through this...

I was thinking the same! There seems to be far more cancer around thesedays, with many dying quickly and at a young age. Why? What are we eating? Or breathing?
What is the cancer research doing? Should we be questioning instead of pouring money into cancer research:confused:

Hotgossip 16-07-2013 22:58

I like her. She was very honest in her autobiography and she has lead a very colourful life. She was a heavy smoker and drinker which is often a fatal combination.

Smoking I know is bad for you, but I think people have to stop blaming it for all ills as they have done for years , smoking has been on the decline for years but cancer is on the up, for that I think we can thank the likes of diesel fumes and also it would appear many household chemicals which are used in abundance these days .

Jimmy Connors 17-07-2013 01:02

Sorry to hear this. All the best Lynda.

She has admitted to smoking 60 a day. Her sister died of lung cancer too. From what I understand if you smoke and drink heavily it makes it even worse.

Get well soon, Lynda.

I lost a family member to cancer over a decade ago.
