Roger Ebert: From his initial diagnosis of thyroid cancer to subsequent battle with the complications of cancer, he was truly an inspiration.
“It is human nature to look aware from illness. We don’t enjoy a reminder of our own fragile mortality.” -Roger Ebert
It was his desire to contribute joy and happiness to the world, even as his health failed, that made Roger Ebert someone that thyroid — or any cancer — patients can look up to, admire, and long remember.
