Poitier Offers Support To Ailing De Niro

OSCAR winner SIDNEY POITIER has offered a get well message to ailing actor ROBERT DE NIRO as he battles prostate cancer.

The IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT star beat the deadly disease himself nine years ago and is well aware of how difficult the next few months will be for his fellow superstar.

He says, "I wish him the best of luck. I understand that he caught it early, so his chances are excellent. It's never an easy fight, it's a disease that takes away too many people."
