Thread Name: Mimi Baez very ill
Subject: Mimi Baez very ill
I haven't been around these parts for quite awhile...but thought of y'all when I got the news this morning about Mimi's condition. I had heard a couple of weeks ago that she was very ill with cancer but had to do some probing of old friends to get the facts. Maybe you are already aware of this, but if not...here is the latest froma very reliable source. Rita, here's the scoop. Mimi is apparently dying . The cancer was discovered on her head and then traced to her lungs, she has gone through extensive chemo, is skin and bones and there is not much else they can do. This info is from a man that recently came to interview Nancy because he is writing a biography of Dick and Mimi. Evidently this man has written a bio of some other famous person and it was an excellent book, so Mimi has given him full cooperation. When Nancy called him to ask about Mimi, she wondered why he hadn't told her since they had spent several days together discussing Mimi. He said that his instructions were to not bring it up with people but if asked her could tell them.
