This post has been updated on January 16, 2020.

Yes, celebrities and public figures get cancer, too. Sometimes they keep it a secret – to avoid unwanted publicity about it, to protect their future prospects, or to simply take care of themselves in their own way. Others can become very public about it by writing books, donating to charities, creating charities, and generally using their spotlight to shed awareness about their cancer.

Sometimes it's comforting to know that these seemingly untouchable, often idealized people we feel like we know so well through their work can get the same kind of cancer you have, too. We are all human; cancer doesn’t discriminate.

We have included a link to any related foundations that these celebrities have started, or that were started in their name. Please click the links to learn more. For all of the men and women below who are currently fighting, the strength of the IHC community is behind you.
