LOS ANGELES TIMES: Warren Buffett completes prostate cancer treatment



 


Warren Buffett, the 82-year-old billionaire investor, said he has completed cancer treatment, according to a report in the Omaha Herald

"It's a great day for me," he told executives from newspapers he owns -- including the Herald -- on Friday. "Today I had my 44th and last day of radiation."

Buffett, CEO of Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway, had announced this spring that he was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer and began radiation treatment in July.

News of his health had stirred speculation about who would succeed the octogenarian whose investment enterprise owns firms in sectors such as manufacturing, utilities, insurance and newspapers.

But in a statement to reassure investors his health was good enough to stay on as chief executive, he said: "I've been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely life-threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way."

With radiation complete, Buffett said he will be feeling the side effects of the treatment in the next few weeks, but that he is glad to be finished.
