Celebs might seem to have the perfect lives, but they aren’t immune to the all the struggles of living that plague the rest of us. They fight with their siblings and their spouses, they occasionally spill food on their clothes, and sometimes they have to deal with life-threatening illnesses like cancer. These inspirational celebrities have made the world a better place through their contributions to the entertainment industry, and they all fought and won a terrifying battle with cancer!
Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro is widely considered to be one of the greatest actors ever, and by the time he turned 60 in 2003 he had appeared in more than 60 movies. Unfortunately, 2003 was also the year that De Niro was diagnosed with prostate cancer during a routine medical exam! He underwent surgery shortly after the cancer was discovered, and thankfully made a full recovery. Here’s hoping he’ll have a role in many more films to come!
