Dimon says he has curable throat cancer

  • Jamie Dimon has told JPMorgan (JPM) employees he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
  • Dimon: "The good news is that the prognosis from my doctors is excellent, the cancer was caught quickly, and my condition is curable."
  • According to Dimon, his condition will likely call for 8 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy at an NYC hospital. "I feel very good now and will let all of you know if my health situation changes."

    Business is business. Can't fault him for due process on many foreclosures.

     

    But illegally on those serving overseas?

     

    Google it, before you "Honor Him"

    Foreclosing on defenseless families while they were overseas defending his coddled elite lifestyle.

    Don't ask me. Ask the Military families, or the hundreds of Madoff/JPM families victimized, whose lives have been destroyed forever, (while JPM knowingly looked the other way) whether they are bitter.

    I had the same diagnosis back in 1986 it's a bi-- but it's survivable. Be advised Mr Dimon that the Radiation will kill your salivary glands and you will need to practice oral hygiene beyond your wildest dreams because then teeth will suffer terribly if you do not do so. Your doctors should council you after treatment is completed. PS I was a non smoker, non alcoholic just unlucky as my ENT told me. Good luck and keep a positive attitude.

    Regardless of whether you admire him as a banker or not, I'm just appalled by the number of people above who are cheering on his cancer diagnosis.

     

    Ever had anyone you were close to get cancer? Or die from cancer? If so and you still speak like this, shame on you.

     

    And if not, please keep your mouths shut, and crawl back into whatever hole you came from.

    Ninja, for the record, this has nothing to do with whether the person is rich or not - cancer is cancer, and this guy has 3 daughters and a wife he's been married to (and still married to) for several decades.

     

    For those on here who feel the need to spew hatred, at least direct it at someone like Angelo Mozilo.

    Jamie Dimon's cancer is the subject of this article. Sorry that he has a wife and 3 daughters, but his prognosis is "excellent" so they'll be OK. He's the one that will hopefully suffer slowly.

     

    Dimon's wealth doesn't bother me...it's his "I'm above the law" attitude and his unlawful greed. He has destroyed thousands of families and cost the taxpayers billions, so forgive me for my lack of sympathy. No amount of discomfort will be enough for him in my book.

    Tell me again how he cost the taxpayer billions? Last I checked, he didn't run Bear Stearns or WaMu.

    idkmybffjill,

     

    Have you been living under a rock? Just Google JP Morgan manipulation and you'll find enough reading to last an entire day.

     

    Gold, silver, aluminum, and energy manipulation, Madoff involvement, screwing other institutions over by selling them toxic derivatives, London Whale. JP Morgan took a portion of the $800 Billion Tarp which was taxpayers money. The list literally goes on and on.

     

    1980XLS has also provided links above.

     

    Others may feel free to add on if they'd like.

    A guy with all that money and alleged smarts goes to the two big poisons of conventional medicine - chemo and radiation. I hope he succeeds, but his immune system will be all but destroyed and soon.

    Looks like the moderator is having a field day with this thread. I've had 7 or 8 posts deleted already. Not wasting my time arguing anymore with DVL, President of the Jamie Dimon Sympathy Club.
