Roger Ebert's cancer struggle

Discussion started on

This is a fantastic article about Roger Ebert's struggle with cancer from Esquire, by journalist Chris Jones. Roger won a Pulitzer prize for criticism (in the seventies), and is an amazing writer, as those that read his reviews know.

Thanks for that, I'm a longtime Ebert fan. He's a wonderful writer and every time I watch a movie (whether I liked it or not) I always want to know what Roger thought of it. He's amazing, my heart ached reading this article.
