Kufan...IMUS IS A CANCER, & THE WORST KIND!! Those women who he claims as "nappy headed ho's" are enjoying their happy, fulfilling lives. And when he's gone, those same "nappy headed ho's" will be dancing & pissing on his grave. No matter what anyone says, he is what he is...a walking racist deadman.

Imus is such a unique character, I don't doubt for a second why he is still going at 68. Prostate cancer happens. My step dad whp is a little older than Imus developed it a few years ago but after treatment pretty close to Imus's age he has been fine and healthy. No one ever wants to get it, but the statistics show it happens to guys his age,

I have always had this love hate relationship with Imus. He had a fantastic show on MSNBC and introduced loads of people to country music. Back in the 90's we would listen to him on the radio on the beach and laugh wild. He was funnier then and like more subdued now. Sarcasm is his trademark.

Heh Imus, you survived the near death experience of falling off the horse at your ranch. I am confident you will you'll get through this too. I try to listen to you, but I moved at sometimes I can catch you on radio sometimes not. Be well.

I have battled Stage 3 ovarian cancer for three years. You people who are celebrating Don Imus' recent cancer diagnosis have no real idea of the impact of the ugly words you're saying. I happen to like Imus. I watched his show daily on MSNBC and feel that he is an honest person, sometimes brutally so, He has apologized in so many ways for his careless remark on TV, and I believe he is truly sorry. Please...dig deep and try to find some compassion for a fellow human being who needs support very much right now.

Listen folks, I used to listen to Don every morning on MSNBC, I never for once thought he was a racist, yes they were some unfortunate remarks that he said in the past and he's paid the price. How many of you can and ever will be able to do the things he's done with Kids that have cancer. There is no KARMA here, Cancer do not discriminate anyone can be affected. BTW if have Direct TV you can catch Don's show on RFD TV(channel 345) in the am. God Bless and keep the faith.This coming from a black person

I honestly hope he overcomes cancer - it's no joke!
As far as his RACIST ignorant comments, it is what it is and was what it was! I still think he is a jerk. The best revenge those college students (nappy-headed hoes) could get on the situation is to be successful college GRADUATES. Karma is a beast...

Imus rocks and it has been reported there is an almost 100% chance of full recovery (then again, they said that about Jerry Orbach and we all know how that ended). He makes asinine comments sometimes in his attempt to be shocking and "cool". It is no different than anything other prominent comedians and talk show hosts have done. Hope he beats this.
