Australian Don Miller is beginning treatment for a secondary endocrine cancer, his eighth cancer since 1964. Mr Miller said, "I'm unlucky in the context of getting the cancers, but I'm lucky in my ability to fight them."
He says the support of his wife and a positive attitude along with early diagnosis help him conquer the cancers. He also credits the the Peter Macallum Cancer Centre in Victoria with his success.
"Having been a patient here for 44 years, I have told the hospital "You keep me going for another six years so I can get to 50, and we'll have a big party'."
