Very sad: George Perez has pancreatic cancer

Veteran artist George Perez, who drew memorable art for Avengers and New Teen Titans, along with Wonder Woman, reported that he's suffering from one of the worst forms of cancer, as reported by Collider:
George Pérez's legendary career at both DC and Marvel include classic comic book storylines like 1985-1986's Crisis on Infinite Earths and 1991's Infinity Gauntlet. In a Facebook post, Pérez announced that he had been diagnosed with stage three pancreatic cancer.

In the post, Pérez wrote that he received the diagnosis on November 27 and that the cancer is inoperable. Pérez, 67, was told by doctors that he has six months to a year to live. "I have been given the option of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy," Pérez wrote in the post, "but after weighing all the variables and assessing just how much of my remaining days would be eaten up by doctor visits, treatments, hospital stays, and dealing with the often stressful and frustrating bureaucracy of the medical system, I've opted to just let nature take its course and I will enjoy whatever time I have left as fully possible with my family, friends, and fans." Pérez is currently planning on making one last public appearance to meet fans and will continue signing autographs.
I hope he can survive, but I realize in real life, relieving news is never so simple. It's a terrible shame it's come to this, because he did turn out some excellent products in the past, that some modern PC generations will never appreciate. For now, I wish him well, and thank him for the best stories he'd illustrated in his time as an artist.
