Am I the only who didn't know about Katee?  
I just read in a Entertainment weekly (I think) that Katee Sackhoff had thyroid cancer? I didn't know and I haven't seen posts among my flist who I know love her. I mean I'm not a huge fan but I still really like her and it upset me a little.

She is totally fine because apparently it was never at a life threatening stage and they removed it all but just wow. She quite smoking to be a role model and now she can also stand and say... this is a scary thing.

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it!

I knew, but I only found out recently. I thought I was the last person to know! *lol*

Quitting smoking is a good thing, both for her own health and for her as a role model on TV. Smoking is evil.

I was surprised I didn't hear about it through a LJ buddy because I've got a lot of Katee fans as friends.

I agree. I have to wonder if it possible contributed to the thyroid issue.

I've a feeling it wasn't widely publicized at the time. Could have been she didn't want people to know.

Smoking causes a lot of cancers. It wouldn't surprise me a bit.

That is very true.

No, it wouldn't surprise me at all but I think it reinforces the reason she quite smoking to begin with.

I'm just very glad she's okay. She's one of those famous people you just see as better than the others because of how much they care about what they are showing to their fans (like to stop smoking). She also seems so sweet.

*hee* More Chuck icons!

I feel much the same about Katee. I tend to be very irritated with the stars who are always on the pages of the tabloids, drinking, partying, smoking ... getting caught for cheating on their partners or some other law broken. They're very bad examples for people, and for young teens in particular.

I totally agree. One of the reasons I really like Katee because seems like a person you could look up too.

Yeah, I'm enjoying Chuck.

Now I am the last to know. Had no idea. Glad to hear she is better.

I suspected some of you out there didn't know. I mean it isn't a huge deal now just because she's fine and everything... it was just a scary thing to learn. She's one of those famous people you know could be like one of your friends. She's just so normal and nice seeming so she one of my favs.

It's still freaking to find those things out, even if it is after the fact. I agree that she definitely seems cool and normal.

I don't even know who that is, so not the only person who didn't know.

Katee played Starbuck in the newer tv version of Battlestar Galactica. She's going to be on the new season of 24 also. My icon.

She just seems like a super cool person. She's one of those famous woman who isn't anywhere near fat but isn't a stick person and believes looking healthy is more important than "skinny."

Also, she in-part stopped smoking because of learning more about cancer and that it would be a good thing to do as a role model to those younger than her.

She just seems like a great person.

Ah, never watched it, but saw commercials, so her face is familiar, just not her name. I hope she recovers quickly and fully.
Jill aka Jo: Chuck: just wowsireesanwar on January 19th, 2010 02:07 am (UTC)
She seems to have already which is part of my surprise because I didn't know she was sick to begin with. I think that is the general consensus though. Apparently, it was pretty hush hush at the time.

I only discovered that way after it was over, and purely by accident, too.

it's weird, usually news or even gossip tracks you down if you want it or now, this time it totally slipped through
Jill aka Jo: Chuck: just wowsireesanwar on January 15th, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah like me. I'm just so stunned that somehow fans weren't posting about it and mentioning it. I would have remembered.

OMG! I wasn't aware of that! Bejeebers! What the hell is happening this year?? So relieve that she is okay. Having met her I can say she is a sweetheart. And it's ironic at the con she talked about smoking and how after speaking with Nathan Fillion (when they worked on White Noise 2) and how he'd told her a story about a friend who'd had cancer and how it had scared her into wanting to quit smoking. I guess this really hit home for her.

Hope she has a full recovery!
Jill aka Jo: Angel: Wesleysireesanwar on January 15th, 2010 09:17 pm (UTC)
I think she has. I'm pretty sure the cancer was just insider her thyroid which they removed.

Angelserenitysangel on January 15th, 2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
That's a relief!

*hugs back*
