Our Thoughts To Sir Ian McKellen

ian_mckellen_31420

It has been revealed that the great and much loved, sir Ian McKellen has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

After keeping his fight against the disease a secret for “six or seven years”, McKellen has decided to speak out. Although living with the cancer over this time, he has admitted to not yet undergoing any form of treatment. Instead, the now 73 year-old takes regular visits to his GP to check there has been no spreading – saying himself, “When you have got it you monitor it and you have to be careful it doesn’t spread. But if it is contained in the prostate it’s no big deal.”

Sir Ian Mckellen, a now icon of cinema and star of both The Lord of The Rings and X-Men franchises, is also a huge campaigner for gay rights. A thespian with outstanding acting chops also offers much time to charity causes.

We’d like to send our best wishes to not only McKellen, but to all suffers of the disease. Below is a link to a campaign supporting the fight against prostate cancer.
