Actress and comedienne Penny Marshall thought she had kicked her cancer, but now it's back in full force and has spread to her lungs. It's stage 4, and the saddest news is that doesn't give her much time.
According to some, just months.
Here's what a source has to say:
“Penny is finally confirming 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 cancer 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. Now she’s furiously trying to finish her book, which is due to be published next fall.
Penny is getting chemotherapy treatments at a Los Angeles hospital every other week, and she’s on several medications. A specialist in New York also consults with her physicians in California. The doctors wanted to put her on stronger medications, but Penny refused, calling the meds ‘gnarly.’"
We wish her the best, and if there is any way to beat this thing we're sure she'll find it. Penny isn't known for being weak, that's for sure.
Our thoughts are with her and her family.
