Man...that's too bad! I read his book "Gifted Hands"....and he's an amazing guy. I hope he gets through it ok. He's helped a WHOLE lot of people.
He was the first person to seperate Siamese twins that were joined at the head.

Man that sucks. I read his autobiography as a kid. He seems like a great guy. :(
A ghetto kid from Detroit who overcame low grades and "pathological" anger by turning his life over to God, avoiding a "victim mentality" and "using my brain to make good choices in life," Carson has inspired a generation of youngsters with his speeches and books.
That is just incredible. I really admire people who can come from difficult backgrounds and avoid victim mentality.

oh wow... i remember reading "Gifted Hands" in high school. my mom told me to read it cuz she wanted me to be a surgeon like him. anyhoo, back then i wasn't a christian and reading his book made me think about how hokey christianity was. it wasn't until years later that i understood some of the things he was saying in his book.
but dang, to hear that he has cancer now...i hope things turn out well too.
