Stanley Tucci Revealed He Battled Cancer Three Years Ago

Stanley Tucci secretly battled cancer three years ago.  He revealed that he was diagnosed with a tumor at the base of his tongue.  Stanley said, “It was too big to operate, so they had to do high-dose radiation and chemo.”

In case you didn’t know, his first wife passed away from cancer, so he was hesitant about doing treatment after seeing his wife go through it.

Stanley said he had a feeding tube for six months and could barely make it to his twin kids’ high school graduation.  The positive news is that he says the cancer is unlikely to return.

And he says, “[Cancer] makes you more afraid and less afraid at the same time. I feel much older than I did before I was sick.  But you still want to get ahead and get things done.”

(You can read his interview in “Vera Magazine”.  His cancer quote is on page 37.)
