View Full Version : Update on Blackjack

08-15-2003, 10:05 AM
Blackjack has been improving and will be released from the hospital later today. In May, they had discovered two cancerous growths on his neck (on his vertabrae). David had them removed and was undergoing chemotherapy. In June, David collapsed while playing in a local tournament. He had suffered a heart attack, and underwent bypass surgery. While he was recovering, he came down with pneumonia. Last week during a follow up, they discovered spots on both of his lungs, and it was feared that the cancer had spread. The spots on his lungs were due to an infection, and it is not cancer (thank God). He is still battling pneumonia and will be taking antibiotics for that. The cancer appears to be in remission at this time. He appreciates all the prayers and support that you all have given him. David also plans on attending the WPBA US Open next month in Albuquerque.
