‘Star Trek’ Star Leonard Nimoy’s Latest Cancer Fight Has a Plan: Take a Cancer Vaccine
“I had been on chemotherapy for almost a year.
I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’st walk, I didn’t have much energy, I was always very lethargic, and I was just a very tired, sleepy, miserable person,” he wrote in a statement.
“My cancer diagnosis was coming on slowly.
I was exhausted, confused, and angry.”
The actress, who has played Spock on two shows, was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in late 2016.
Nimoy said he has not been in contact with the actor’s family, but he did share an emotional goodbye message on social media last week.
“We are sorry to inform you that Leonard Nimoys cancer is now in remission.
I want to thank all the amazing people at the Academy for their incredible support and kindness during Leonard’s time of need,” he said.
Nimoy’s cancer, which began in 2012, has left him in a constant state of fear, but in his most recent statement, he described his recovery as “phenomenal.”
“I will always remember the day Leonard Nimos cancer diagnosis arrived.
I felt the weight of it for a while.
But when I finally felt it for real, it felt like a dream.
The cancer has been removed, but I know there are still some lingering issues that I have to deal with.
There is no doubt that I am going to fight to live, to get well, and to be strong for Leonard.
I know I am very strong,” he continued.
“The future of Leonard Nimons life is bright.
We are all stronger together.”
