Dr. Oz Past Patients: Cornell – Liver Tumors Update
Cornell, a 66 year-old man, had a tumor on his liver that most doctors would not operate on. One doctor wanted to remove the liver, cut out the cancer and put the liver back in place. When he pulled the liver out though, he realized the cancer had spread to both sides of the liver and he would not be able to operate on it. He told Cornell he had 6 months to live.
One year later, Cornell is on the Dr. Oz show. He said he has been given three different death dates over the course of having his liver looked at and he has made it through all of them. He said he attributes his health and living for longer than anyone thought because of God and because of his loving wife.
Cornell said he is going to keep living life as long as he can and not let the cancer get the best of him. He said he has been traveling to numerous family reunions and plans on taking his wife to Ireland next year, a dream of hers.
