I was saddened this evening when my husband Bob showed me an article on Pop Eater.The article was from today reporting that the former Monkee, Peter Tork had been diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. It was found on the lower region of his tongue. According to Peter's website, he was to undergo extensive surgery today, followed by radiation afterwards.

As a kid I remember Peter Tork best as the Monkee with the cute dimples when he smiled. Often casted as the "dummy" in the TV show "The Monkees."
My prayers go out to Peter Tork as he goes through his treatment for his cancer. (An update on Facebook says that he's out of surgery and things have gone well.) May you meet your goal of being well for your concert dates starting in June 2009
Yeah, Peter for putting a link on your website to Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Alliance!
