25 years ago multiple myeloma was a short term death sentence. Today the outlook is much better, but still not good.

I wish Tom the best, but frankly, this multiple myeloma is not easy to beat. My brother in law had it and fought it for two years. Five year survival rate very low. On the other hand, in 1970, at the age of 70, my grandma was diagnosed with it and doctors said she had months at the most. She lived to almost 90 and then died of something else. Prayers for Brokaw.

Thank heaven we had Tom Browaw to watch, when otherwise, we were stuck with Dan Rather.
