Pleshette Battling Cancer
Beloved US TV legend SUZANNE PLESHETTE is battling lung cancer, according to press reports. The 69-year-old star of THE BIRDS is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but feels like she's got what it takes to pull through after nursing two husbands through their cancer crises. According to US tabloid the National Enquirer, the actress' prognosis is good because the cancer was spotted early and a source tells the weekly publication, "Doctors hope, with chemo and surgery down the road, Suzanne will make a complete recovery." Pleshette was in high sprits when an Enquirer reporter called her at the hospital, but refused to talk about her condition, insisting she was just simply "exhausted". The insider adds, "She's determined to fight this thing with everything she's got... We're all praying for her."
