David Bowie was ‘optimistic’ about cancer recovery: Friend

Los Angeles: Legendary musician David Bowie was “optimistic” about recovering from cancer just weeks before his death, says close friend Robert Fox.

The ‘Starman’ hitmaker passed away on January 10 after a secret 18-month battle with cancer. He was 69.

Film and theatre producer Fox, has revealed he met a positive Bowie last month, who was preparing to take an “experimental” new drug in the hope it would “prolong his life”, reported Times.

“He was feeling unwell but he wasn’t making a fuss about it. He was about to start a new treatment that was quite experimental and that had had some success in other people. “He felt optimistic about it being able to prolong his life, hopefully in the belief there would be better and newer treatments that would come along,” Fox said.
