Science fiction author announces he has metastatic prostate cancer.

This news up on the Cascadia Con site:

"It is with great regret that we must announce that Fred Saberhagen was just diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer. Metastatic prostate cancer is prostate cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes or other parts of the body (metastasized). He has asked us to relay that he is in the process of getting the cancer stabilized. He has also said that he does hope and plan to see us all at some other future con.

When asked if there is a medical fund that fans can contribute to for his behalf, he says that; "Right now, there's no fund in existence that I know about. Med costs are still uncertain."

Get well soon, Fred.
