Buffett Battling Bad News
BusinessInsider says Warren Buffett has been diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer. Subsequent CAT and bone scans revealed the cancer has not spread. The Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, which owns Clayton Homes of Maryville, Tennessee, will begin radiation treatment in July, and says his travel will be restricted during that time, but otherwise he will maintain his normal schedule. Two days after the diagnosis he was hosting 160 university business students, fielding questions during a two-and-a-half hour Q & A session. MHProNews.com has learned the success rate in treating prostate cancer in this stage is high, although the news does restart the mill grinding over who will succeed the 81 year-old legendary Oracle of Omaha.
