Mary Travers has leukemia

Fortunately, she's expected to recover.
Singer Mary Travers has leukemia

NEW YORK (AP) -- Mary Travers, 67, of Peter, Paul and Mary is undergoing chemotherapy for a form of leukemia, but a full remission is expected within a few months, her publicist, Ken Sunshine, said Tuesday.

"Mary looks forward to touring again with the trio soon, and is grateful for the well wishes that have come to her from all over the world," the statement said. No other details were released.

Last February, Peter, Paul and Mary, known for songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Puff, The Magic Dragon," released "Carry It On," a five-disc box set of their greatest hits. They released their self-titled debut album in 1962.

The trio, comprised of Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey and Travers, have dates set for a spring 2005 tour beginning February 18 at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, according to their Web site. There was no comment on whether concert dates would be canceled or rescheduled.
She's 67?!? That's even harder to believe than that she has cancer!

Seriously, though, if her prognosis weren't favorable, I wouldn't make this joke.

Speaking of Peter, Paul and Mary, on this first night of Chanukah, let's remember their wonderful song, "Light One Candle":
Light one candle for the Maccabee children
With thanks that their light didn’t die
Light one candle for the pain they endured
When their right to exist was denied
Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice
Justice and freedom demand
But light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker’s time is at hand

Don’t let the light go out!
It’s lasted for so many years!
Don’t let the light go out!
Let it shine through our love and our tears.
May our light never go out.
