Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
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.
