Actress Blythe Danner is in remission from the same cancer her husband died from.

Blythe Danner, the actress best known for her role in Meet the Parents and mother of actress Gwyneth Paltrow, recently revealed that she was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2018. After years of treatment for the disease, the 79-year-old has announced that she is now in remission.

Danner’s husband, Bruce Paltrow, died of the disease in 2002.

“Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, but it’s very unusual for a couple to have the same cancer,” the 79-year-old told People. She said, “I remember looking up at the sky and saying to Bruce, ‘Are you alone out there?'” “It’s a sneaky disease. But I’m fine and wonderful now. And I’m lucky to be alive.”

Actor Armie Hammer’s father, Michael Armand Hammer, has died of cancer.

A uterine cancer survivor has been waiting 36 hours to meet the Houston Astros’ second baseman.

After completing treatment for uterine cancer on November 9, Texas native Lisa Valverde hurried to a local sporting goods store to meet Jose Altuve, second man for the World Series-winning Houston Astros. Valverde was ranked first and waited 36 hours before meeting the baseball star.

“It was all worth it,” said Valverde. “It was much better than ringing a bell[to signify the end of cancer treatment].”

“I’m glad she (Valverde) is supposed to ring the bell. It’s a good thing, of course, in her life,” Altuve said. “The fact that she came here (instead) makes me feel good. I was a little emotional when you told me that. what can i say I’m really happy that we can make people happy like the whole team did this year.”

A woman is suing the manufacturers of chemical hair straighteners, claiming they led to her cancer diagnosis.

Rhonda Terrell has filed a federal lawsuit against L’Oréal and other companies that make chemical hair straighteners — a type of beauty product popular in the black community — claiming that use of styling agents led to her diagnosis of metastatic uterine cancer.

The lawsuit comes after research published from the National Institutes of Health showed that 4.05% of women who frequently use chemical straighteners will end up diagnosed with uterine cancer by age 70, compared to 1.64% of women who did not.

“If I had known all those years ago, if they had a warning on the box to say this could cause cancer, I wouldn’t have used it,” Terrell told NBC News. “And I want to hold them accountable because I have granddaughters.”
