Confused I Had No Idea Penny Marshall Battled Both Brain & Lung Cancer?!?

IT was featured heavily on tmz.com and in the Enquirer. Her recent weight gain was due to the steroid treatments for her cancer.

I don't read/watch either of them, so I guess that explains why I'm out of the loop!!

WOW that's also news to me. No wonder she sounds and acts differently. She talks really slow and I thought something wasn't right, now it makes sense. I thought it was from the fall she took when she was in the wire harness that it had caught up to her.

I just knew she had had cancer. Didn't know how extensive it was. Is she well now?

Penny only has a few months to live according to the National Enquirer.com

PENNY MARSHALL’s cancer has returned – and spread to her lungs, sources say.

Sadly, doctors have given the 68-year-old “Laverne & Shirley” star just months to live, according to insiders.


“Penny is finally confirm*ing her battle with cancer only because she wants her fans to read about it in her own words,” a close source told The ENQUIRER.

“What her agent didn’t say is that Penny’s can*cer has returned. Doctors are telling her that it’s Stage 4 and has spread to her lungs – and she may not have more than six months to live.

.

“Penny is getting chemother*apy treatments at a Los Angeles hospital every other week, and she’s on several medications,” the source revealed.

“A specialist in New York also consults with her physicians in California. The doc*tors wanted to put her on stronger medi*cations, but Penny refused, calling the meds ‘gnarly.’

The Enquirer article appeared today. You have to remember that the National Enquirer came out with the news of Penny's cancer and she denied it.
They have been right all along.
They said 6 months! We will see!

I am just not sure that being optimistic is the word I want to use. Penny already said that some of the treatments themselves have made her sick.
There was pictures of Penny coming out of treatment and she was all bloated. Penny already went through all the treatment and went into remission and the cancer came back. There is an article today in the National Enquirer where they reported that Steve McQueen had terminal cancer and they denied it. Guess what? Steve had terminal cancer.
I don't think Penny is indenial about her cancer as she just admitted it.
The cancer has spread.
All we can do is to wish her peace with everthing.
