Default Timothy B Schmit Health Update

Timothy B. Schmit Health Update
From his assistant Julie:


Quote:
Dear Fans of Timothy,

First of all, please know that Timothy is ok, so don't worry. He said I can tell you
about his current health situation, since I'm sure you would want to know.

In October, Timothy was diagnosed with throat and neck cancer. He flew to
New York right after the 11/17/12 Las Vegas show for surgery with a top surgeon.
He was only in the hospital for three days.

The good news is that the surgery was successful and Timothy has received a clean bill of
health. The final pathology report stated that he appears to be cancer free, both in his throat and neck.
He does not need to have chemo or radiation. Now he just has to keep an eye on things every month
for about a year to be sure it stays away, and then not so often.

Timothy is healing nicely, though his throat is still a bit sore, but he's already out and about.
He says that this has been a life changer in many ways, and that it has only
bolstered his resolve to, in the words of Warren Zevon, “... enjoy every sandwich."

He doesn’t have his singing voice back yet, but he’s been talking ever since being in the
recovery room at the hospital, and the doctors are quite confident he’ll be up
and at it again, in a matter of time. As of 12/20/12, he’s still planning to perform
at the Eagles’ 12/30/12 show in Las Vegas.

If you would like to email a message to Timothy, you may send it to info@timothybschmit.com, in the subject line, put "Message for Timothy" and I'll make sure he receives it.

If you would like to mail him a card or letter, please send it to:

Timothy B. Schmit
c/o ETC
1100 Glendon Ave., Suite 2000
Los Angeles, CA 90024

I know Timothy will be glad to receive your encouraging messages of support.
Please know that he's in good spirits and is optimistic, as always.

I wish you all a happy, healthy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.


All the best,


Julie Freeman
on behalf of Timothy B. Schmit

OMG I just saw that on Facebook. Thank goodness he's doing well but he needs to focus on taking care of himself before all else.

I will pray for Timothy for a full recovery! There are so many people being diagnosed every day with cancer that it shouldn't be such a shock, but it always is to me, especially when it is someone that you know or admire, like Timothy.

I certainly was shocked and upset by this and definately am glad to hear he's well on the way to recovery. Cancer is a very scary disease and I'm just glad with Timothy that it looks like they got it early.

I'm glad for Timothy that they got it early too and looks like he will recover fully. I'm sure he has the best Medical team that there is looking out for him.

I of course will put a greeting out to him and will send on a card in the next day or 2. I hope his family have a wonderful Christmas.

Oh my gosh how frightening! Heck, I'm frightened and I only know him as a fan. It sounds like he is OK now, even maybe up to singing, but I will keep him in my prayers.
