Very. very sad.

The fact that Norm MacDonald was battling cancer in private for so many years makes that much more poignant.

He was one of my favorite stand-up acts and the best "Weekend Update" anchor, in my opinion. I admire the fact that he kept his illness private like Bill Hicks. No drama queens here. Gonna miss you, Norm.

Telling the public you have cancer is being a drama queen? Do you realize how brave that is?
Lost a friend to cancer, that's a pretty shi%%y thing to say, to keep it positive, I'll add Norm was also the greatest natural genuine comedic voice EVER. His comedic genius knows no bounds but he was too edgy for mainstream, Your favorite comedian's favorite comedian, just check twitter.

Thanks Shells, it was life defining!
A guy that looked like a model, who had everything going for him, looking fresh one day, gone the next week from Blood Cancer. No symptoms #FCancer

We are always reminded of how life is so incredibly short and to live each day like it could be your last.

Peace be with you and your friend.
