UFO Legend Pete Way Thanks Fans For Support In Cancer Fight

(Classic Rock) Former UFO bassist Pete Way has thanked fans for their support after revealing he'd been diagnosed with prostate cancer. And he admits he was moved to tears when he discovered how much goodwill people felt towards him.

On Monday the 62-year-old told Classic Rock he was feeling "good, positive and determined to beat it," adding: "I'm lucky this is prostate cancer, not lung cancer, not pancreatic cancer. If you're going to get cancer this is the best one you can have. And they caught it early."

He also told how the tumour was discovered by accident as doctors continued to treat him for liver disease, caused by years of hard living.

Now Way says via Facebook: "Thanks everyone for your amazing support. I am absolutely knocked out by your kind words, best wishes and prayers for recovery and no longer feel I am fighting this thing on my own.

"I'm not the sort of man who cries but I must admit to shedding a tear when I read your kind words." more on this story
