As you may have heard, Adam Yauch (aka MCA) of the Beastie Boys has been battling cancer, in the form of a tumor on his parotid gland. Earlier today news broke that he had been declared cancer free. As the Toronto Sun reports, the hoped-for diagnosis came after Yauch “adopted a strict vegan diet and turned to ancient Chinese medicine upon the advice of Tibetan doctors.”
While I’m grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated.
I’m continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future.
Hang in there, Yauch — we’ll keep the positive energy coming your way.
