Dr. Jagannath, Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy Medical Center will join Anna's Journey to discuss

Pancreatic Cancer as this topic hits the airways due to actor Sir John Hurt's (actor) recent announcement about his diagnosis of this cancer.

 

Sir John Hurt, the veteran actor, has been diagnosed with cancer but will keep working and says he is "more than optimistic" about his future.

The star, 75, has enjoyed a successful career with notable roles including Quentin Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant, the title role in The Elephant Man and a recurring role in the Harry Potter films.

In a statement released on Tuesday afternoon, he said: "I have always been open about the way in which I conduct my life and in that spirit I would like to make a statement.

"I have recently been diagnosed with early stage pancreatic cancer. I am undergoing treatment and am more than optimistic about a satisfactory outcome, as indeed is the medical team.

"I am continuing to focus on my professional commitments and will shortly be recording Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell (one of life's small ironies!) for BBC Radio 4."
