The Los Angeles Times reports (albeit unconfirmed) that Paul Newman, who among other charitible ventures has worked with the "Hole in the Wall Gang" to make life easier for children with life-threatening illnesses, has himself been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
The acclaimed actor is said to have been diagnosed at New York’s Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he is currently receiving outpatient treatment and is under a leading New York oncologist's care. One of the few to know about Newman's illness is his "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" costar and good pal, Robert Redford.Yeah, the man totally hated the IRL for a while there but his love of motorsports has always been unquestionable. And although his movie career has been HUGE it's his charitable work that has made him stand out from other celebrities.

Lung cancer is a beast, so if this is indeed true our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this time that, speaking from experience, will totally suck.
