Elizabeth Montgomery of colon cancer (5/18/95) - died the same week as my grandma, actually.

Her Bewitched co-stars Alice Pearce (ovarian cancer), Agnes Moorehead (uterine cancer), Dick Sargent (prostate cancer) and Alice Ghostley (colon cancer) also fell victim to the disease.

^ I loved Jim Varney!! From his roles as Ernest to the Slinky Dog in the Toy Story movies, he was indeed a very funny and talented man.

Why such a morbid thread? Just seems everyday someone is reminding us of people who died or are dying of cancer.

Couldn't we just take a break for a bit of this kind of topic? I know I could "ignore" threads on the subject, but you can't ignore the titles when reviewing boards.
