But he says he feels "great." Some good news!
This afternoon, Warren Buffet's people announced that the tycoon has sadly been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Despite diagnosis, Warren released a statement explaining his condition, while serious, has yet to affect his optimistic outlook on life.
"I received my diagnosis last Wednesday. I then had a CAT scan and a bone scan on Thursday, followed by an MRI today. These tests showed no incidence of cancer elsewhere in my body. My doctors and I have decided on a two-month treatment of daily radiation to begin in mid-July. This regimen will restrict my travel during that period, but will not otherwise change my daily routine."
Buffet, who is 81, feels great and said his energy level is "100%."
Seeing as how he is a billionaire investor and the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, his investors and shareholders are obviously worried.
In hopes of calming their fears, Warren told investors he has picked a successor, though he won't name him yet. He added:
"I will let shareholders know immediately should my health situation change. Eventually, of course, it will; but I believe that day is a long way off."
Way to stay positive!
With good thoughts and good energy (and billions of dollars), you'll come out of this just fine!
Get well, Warren.
