Roger Williams - Pianist Roger Williams Battling Cancer

Celebrity pianist Roger Williams has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
The Born Free star, 86, began chemotherapy treatment last week (ends18Mar11) and surgeons hope to remove the tumour once it shrinks down to an operable size.
But the musician is refusing to let the disease interfere with his tour plans and pressed ahead with a performance in Palm Desert, California on Sunday (20Mar11).
