Kareem Abdul Jabbar talks about his Leukaemia battle.
NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar may be known to you as a top class Basket Ball player from many years ago,and if ,like me!, you have ever watched the comedy movie "Airplane" from 1980 (that long ago?) you will remember him playing the part of Co-Pilot Roger (over and out!) alongside Peter Graves and Leslie Neilson but did you know that 6 or 7 years ago he was diagnosed with CML?
Kareem is now in remission, but has pledged to use his fame and influence to help others with their battles. Massive respect to this wonderful man for using his public profile to help fight cancer....top bloke :-)
