For those who are fans of Swedish crime novelist Henning Mankell, he made an annoucement today on his blog that he has recently been diagnosed with cancer.  It seems he was visiting the doctor for a non-related health concern and the cancer was discovered.  Here is the link to his blog if you would care to read more.

He is so straightforward about his emotions that it makes me want to cry! I sure hope that whatever treatment they decide on, it's successful!!

That's too bad, I like him. Cancer is such a terrible thing to have. My aunt is at the exact stage he is, they have found something, it's probably bad, but they don't know exactly how bad yet.
