Time to wait and allow all the facts and the details to come out.

Wait everyone - don’t draw any conclusions just yet.

Long long way to go.

There are 30 kinds of lymphoma and Thompson says his is “the good kind”.

True, lets calm down.

It sounds like the least serious type according to the news. Saying it's now in remission.

hey, McCain and Rudy both had cancer, so what is to stop Fred?

Praying hard for Fred and family....and our country (we need him!)

It’s in remission. Seems he’s getting this announcement out of the way as part of his decision on whether he will run for President.

Probably why he’s been hesitant to jump into the Prez candidacy ring.

Not good. However I want you all to know that my dad was diagnosed with lymphoma in the mid 70’s and lived for 19 more years. I doubt that Fred Thompson will be running for the nomination. Hopefully he will have many, many years left to enjoy life.

Thank goodness. And for his sake and his wife and children's sake.

Normal political bickering can resume later.

Considering all your nasty, stupid posts, how dare you?

Thompson is fine. You should simply apologize and move on. He has known about this for YEARS.
