Robb4242 Posted January 16, 2016 Share Posted January 16, 2016 I met Mort once in a mexican restaurant in Douglasville, GA - he went to First Baptist Church in Douglasville - my mother's church. Super nice guy. Hate to hear this news.I looked up the survival rates for the different types of throat cancer -http://www.cancer.org/cancer/laryngealandhypopharyngealcancer/detailedguide/laryngeal-and-hypopharyngeal-cancer-survival-ratesnot encouraging if you are at Stage 4 - which is the most advanced stage. Looks like there are 4 types and the five year survival rates depending on the type range from 24%-44%.Hopefully Mort beats those odds - God Bless him and his family.That was the first thing I looked up after reading the article as well. Scary stuff and praying that he is one of those who will beat the odds. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
