...Not very good news.....i wish him all the best...Gilchrist was one tough customer to bring down...He was a very hard hitting fullback back in the 'day'....i'm sure he'll be just as tough, dealing with this disease.... :thup:

Thanks for providing this for us, Earl.

A very uplifting story!

Maybe this bout with throat cancer
was a blessing in disguise.

It sounds to me like
he's winning the battle

and he now realizes he has friends
and he is not disliked by everybody.

[I CHANGED THIS COMMENT 2 POSTS BELOW Cookie isn't scheduled at the Grey Cup.]

If he comes up to Toronto
for this year's Grey Cup

he will find out how much
his Canadian fans love him.

I can't wait to hear how loud
the cheers are for him.

Go Cookie!

Cookie isn't scheduled at the Grey Cup as I previously posted

I misread this below sentence in the newspaper article

"He's [Cookie's] also in contact with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats
in hopes of participating in the 50th anniversary celebration
of the 1957 Grey Cup."

but it true that if he comes up to Hamilton
to celebrate the 1957 Grey Cup

he will find out how much
his Tiger Cats fans love him.

I can't wait to hear how loud
the cheers are going to be

for the one and only Cookie Gilchrist.
