Jamie Dimon has a Curable Cancer of the Throat

Jamie Dimon was called the King of Wall Street for his role in maneuvering his bank JPMorgan Chase through the global financial crisis that got precipitated. 

Recently, he made the announcement that he had contracted throat cancer. Nevertheless, the optimistic bank head also said that it was treatable and that the disease had been caught early hence it was not a terminal illness of sorts. 

"I wanted to let you know that I have just been diagnosed with throat cancer. The good news is that the prognosis from my doctors is excellent, the cancer was caught quickly, and my condition is curable.

"Following thorough tests that included a CAT scan, PET scan and a biopsy, the cancer is confined to the original site and the adjacent lymph nodes on the right side of my neck. Importantly, there is no evidence of cancer elsewhere in my body," the 58-year-old Dimon wrote in a letter to employees and shareholders on Tuesday.

His physicians had told him that there was no danger to his life. He also spoke of how the tumor was restricted to the right side of his neck so it was nothing to worry about. 

The banker said that he plans on starting treatment soon and will be fit as a fiddle in no time. Dimon was thankful that it hadn’t spread to other sites in his body and had been caught while it was in its early stages. 

In other words, Dimon had been saved the agony of metastasis. With metastasis, cancer becomes a headache to manage or contain. 

Dimon has been leading his bank for the past decade or so. He plans to continue in his quest to financially serve his society and the world via his economic institution. 

He had not been feeling his usual self last week and decided to pay his doctor a visit. That was when after a couple of tests it was discovered that he had cancer of the throat. 

Despite the accolades that came Dimon’s way for his role in mentoring his bank through dire straits, a recent scandal had also plagued his existence. 

Nevertheless, he remains quite a famous figure among bankers and investors. In a missive to all the staff and administration of his bank, Dimon explained his serious illness and assured everybody regarding his continued interest in the affairs of the bank. 

He spoke of how he would keep them posted on his illness. And he also thanked them for their moral support.
