Prowse Pays Tribute To Goody

STAR WARS actor DAVID PROWSE has paid tribute to fellow cancer sufferer JADE GOODY.
The 73-year-old, who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, revealed he was battling prostate cancer earlier this week (16Mar09).
And he has hailed British reality TV star Goody - who is dying from cervical cancer - for helping to raise awareness of the disease.
He says, "I now know what it's like to go through this treatment, and I have sympathy for anyone in the same position. Jade should be commended for her achievements, and should be thoroughly proud of raising the awareness of cervical cancer.
"She has done more than anyone else in memory to convince women to go for regular tests. If I can do the same for prostate cancer in men, then I will be happy."
