David Bowie was reportedly preparing to undergo experimental treatment for his cancer condition…
The star suffered 18 months with liver cancer and kept it private from the public eye, and died January 10th.
According to his close friend, film and theatre producer Robert Fox, he was hoping to extend his life with the drug that has been successful with others.
He was feeling unwell but he wasn’t making a fuss about it. He was about to start a new treatment that was quite experimental and that had had some success in other people. He felt optimistic about it being able to prolong his life, hopefully in the belief there would be better and newer treatments that would come along.
Sadly, David never got to feel the benefits of such a treatment. His new album, Blackstar, which he released on Friday, two days before his death, is full of references to his condition.
