Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press caught up with Fergie, and the two paint a picture of hero fighting bravely and calmly. He has an aggressive form of bone cancer, said to be as painful of an infliction as there is. Fergie has already beaten prostate cancer, and is pleased with his progress this go-around.
"I'm feeling pretty good. We're halfway through the chemotherapy. I have to go back down to Toronto later this month for a body scan," said Ferguson, who lives in Windsor, Ontario, to Lawless. "The last few years, I had a triple bypass about five years ago, then prostate cancer two years ago and now I'm dealing with this. They say it's aggressive but we're doing what we can. I haven't lost my appetite and I'm holding my weight. All in all, I'm feeling pretty good."One of the keys for Ferguson is keeping his mind focussed on his life long passions.
"I've got a satellite here and I get to keep up on horse racing and hockey," said Ferguson. "I'm watching some races from Great Britain right now. And I watch about five hockey games a night. I still talk to Doug Wilson (San Jose Sharks GM) every day. I'm still working with San Jose as a consultant. Doug values my opinion and I love being involved in hockey. The horses, we have five right now and we race mostly in New York and Ontario. I still love the horses. Put it this way, if I ever go out, it'll either be at the race track or in a hockey rink."Read Lawless' full article and a read a great story of Fergie's dust-up with a young Bill Plager.
