Ben Stiller reveals he had Prostate Cancer 2 years ago
October 4th, 2016 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: 10 ]

Ben Stiller plays a funny man on the big screen, but he got real serious today on The Howard Stern Show when he told the Shock Jock that he was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer two years ago.
He not only talked about it on the radio show, he blogged about his diagnosis and treatment. He started out his post by saying, “So, yeah, it’s cancer.” Then he reveals he was diagnosed on Friday the 13th of June in 2014 and three months later on September 17, 2014 he heard he the words, “cancer free.” The actor had his prostate removed with all of the cancer and he remains free of cancer 2 years later.
He is coming forward to tell men to get the their PSA levels checked even before the mandatory age of 50 because he was only 48 when he was given the scary news. All a man has to do is take a blood test. It is so simple and it can save your life.
It saved his life and it saved my father’s life. Men do it. Do it today!


Shannen Doherty reveals her cancer has spread
August 1st, 2016 under Beverly Hills 90210 / Melrose Place, Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

Two weeks ago, Shannen Doherty shared photos of herself gradually shaving her head and now she has revealed to Entertainment Tonight why she did it. Sadly, her cancer has spread. She said, “I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes.”
Due to the cancer spreading, she has been put on Chemo. She explained, “After my second treatment, my hair was really matted, like in dreadlocks. And I went to try and brush it out, and it just fell out…I just remember holding onto huge clumps of my hair in my hands, and just running to my mom crying, like, ‘My hair, my hair, my hair, my hair.'” She grabbed a pair of scissors to cut it off, but her mom put it into a ponytail and chopped that off. She liked the Bob, but the hair was still falling out. At that point she decided to shave it all off, but did it in steps.
Her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, has been helping her deal with the ill effects of Chemo and being her support system as she battles this disease. A battle that cost her a breast and her hair, but hopefully not her life.
After she finishes the Chemo, she will go through Radiation. Hopefully, together all of those treatments will leave her cancer-free. If there is one thing we know about Shannen, she is a fighter! Fight Shannen, fight!


Shannen Doherty shaves her head because of cancer

Shannen Doherty announced 11 months ago that she has breast cancer, and now she shared six emotional photos of herself shaving her head as she continues to battle the horrible disease. She did not explain why she did it, but sadly you can assume that she is going through chemotherapy.
Hopefully, this treatment will get rid of the cancer and she will find herself free of it in no time at all.
When it comes to her shaved head, they say bald is beautiful and on her that is certainly true.


Dominic Purcell breaks his nose while filming Prison Break
June 1st, 2016 under Fox, Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

A few weeks ago, Fox announced that they were bringing back Prison Break and they are already filming the new season.
Today, while filming a scene for the drama, an iron bar accidentally fell on Dominic Purcell’s head and he was airlifted to a hospital. The closest one was two hours away, but thankfully due to the quick thinking by his girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord and Christina Northrup, he got the right care as quickly as possible.
Tests revealed that he did not suffer any serious injuries, but he did break his nose in two places. Instead of being upset by it, he joked, “I got a free nose job out of it.”
He wasn’t the only one who could laugh about it afterwards, McCord said, “That hard head is good for something.” I say afterwards because in that photo of them in the helicopter, you can see the fear in her face. Fear that was alleviated when he was given the all-clear.
Once he was released from the hospital, he was flown back to the set and immediately went back to work. Proving he is just as tough as his character.


Randolph Mantooth is cancer free
December 8th, 2015 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

Back in August, Randolph Mantooth revealed that he had cancer. A few days ago, the Emergency star announced on Facebook that he is cancer free.

Back when I was in high school, one of the books that was on the “required reading” list was Dickens’ ‘Tale of Two Cities’. I must admit the opening line of the book, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” went right over my head. But that opening line pretty much sums up this past year for me. Hearing “you have cancer” and enduring the ensuing treatment was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. But, a few weeks ago, hearing “you’re cancer-free” was music to my ears.
With the holidays approaching, I’m truly thankful for the love and support of my family and friends. I’m thankful for my determined doctors and modern medicine. I’m also thankful for the thousands of prayers that have lifted my spirits along the way. The road to full recovery will take many more months — chemo really kicked my butt! – but this Thanksgiving Day I’ll put that aside and simply be grateful for the special people in my life, and for the gift of life itself. I wish you all a blessed holiday, and I thank every one of you for standing by me through the best of times and the worst of times. Better days lie ahead!

The actor is hoping to resume his speaking engagements next year and we are hoping he will be able to do just that. Emergency became more than a job to him, and he has done tremendous things for fireman and paramedics since then. Hopefully, he will continue to do even more for them next year.
