Scientology, why are you keeping a cancer patient from seeing his only daughter? - 2017-01-27
Bernie Headley sounded really good on the phone. And he says for now, he feels good. The lung cancer he was diagnosed with in 2004 went into remission after he had a partial lung removal. It came back in 2014, but radiation treatments seem to have made that dormant as well. But then lesions started showing up on his brain.
In 2014, he was told he had three to six months to live after his lung cancer came back. And when he found out he had brain cancer, he was again told he had three to six months to live. But he still has no symptoms, and the effects of his most recent radiation treatment are receding. Doctors are waiting for his body to recover from that, and then in March they'll do a new set of scans on his brain to see whether the lesions have grown.
"I joke about being the Energizer Bunny," he told us by phone this week. "But Marc hates when I do that. He actually takes it more seriously than I do."
