By now we know that cancer doesn’t discriminate by age, race, gender, sexuality, or class. You’d be hard pressed to find a person on this earth who doesn’t know someone who has either survived or succumbed to the disease or been diagnosed with some form themselves, and celebrities are no different. Here are 14 who’ve earned the title of survivor after overcoming a bout with cancer.
Michael C. Hall
Actor Michael C. Hall has tried his best to live a private life. He secretly wed second wife and “Dexter” co-star Jennifer Carpenter and it took them over a year to make an appearance together as a married couple. Hall further had heads scratching after he accepted a Golden Globe award in 2010 wearing a knit cap until his agent confirmed Hall was undergoing treatment for a treatable form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A few months later it was announced he was fully cured of the disease. In 2011, the “Six Feet Under” star became celebrity spokesperson for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night Walk” fundraising campaign.
