Default Roger Ebert has passed away at 70

He just announced a "Leave of Presence" yesterday, too. I'm legitimately shocked.

He had the same type of radiation that I had as a child. They removed my thyroid to prevent what happened to him. I got a brain tumor from the radiation, but I had surgery and did fine.

Forgive me for telling my story, but my heart ached when I first saw that he had thyroid cancer because it could have been me. I have enormous respect and admiration for how he handled it.

RIP Roger Ebert - you were incredibly brave.

Just saw it too. He will be missed. Both Siskel and Ebert died from cancer. Eerie.

I understand CP. He was tremendously brave.

Sad. I used to love watching the old Siskel and Ebert show.

I didn't realize he had been having these health problems. RIP. I loved his show as a kid.

Why did he (and you) have radiation as a child?

I believe Roger was given radiation in the 50s as treatment for an ear infection. So sad.

Answering RCW - I had repeated ear infections as a child. Even though they cured them with antibiotics, they gave me radiation to prevent me from getting another ear infection. Insanity - but nobody knew that radiation was harmful.

I was also fluoroscoped every year - that's radiation to the whole body! to see that I was growing nicely and there was absolutely NO REASON whatsoever to do that. I was perfectly healthy. It was crazy. My dad was a dr. and my mom was a nurse - it was cutting edge medicine.

It's miraculous that I am in one piece after all that.

CP, my mother had radiation as a child for repeated ear infections. She's told me stories about how they would stick these rods up her nose for the treatment. I didn't realize that's what caused your brain tumor.

I'm so glad that everything turned out ok for you.

RIP Mr. Ebert

RIP Ebert.

CP - I am so glad you are here and okay!! Radiation for ear infections? OMG! and the whole body radiation? OMG twice!

Don't let RCW fool you: if she's against you, you cannot win, but if she's on your side (and she is!) you are untouchable
