On the Day Lucille Ball and Co-Star Vivian Vance Farewell

Longtime “I Love Lucy” actor Vivian Vance passed away Sunday in her home in Belvedere, California, a community on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. She has reached the ripe old age of 66.

Miss Vance played an international spy alongside Ed Wynn in the 1937 Broadway musical “Hooray for What,” and she co-starred with Lucille Ball on “I Love Lucy” from 1951 to 1959 and “The Lucy Show” from 1962 to 1965.

Miss Vance’s role in the long-running and massively successful Lucy series was little but crucial. She and William Frawley played Lucy’s neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mertz. Lucy was played by Miss Ball, who was attractive, conniving, and still ladylike.

We had Viv on the couch in the living room after bringing her down. They shared a meal together and carried on a lengthy discussion during the course of their meal. “Viv knew she was dying,” Peterson claimed. She largely disregarded the two celebs.

She broke down and cried. It was impossible for her to make a sound. And after that, I suppose Viv just gave up.”

Lucille Ball’s sorrow was similarly unbearable. Ball’s daughter Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill claims her mother was devastated for months following Vance’s passing.

“She cried about losing Viv for months after that,” she said to the media. “In many respects, Viv was to my mother what a sister is to her brothers. She had a special way with my mother; I doubt there are many individuals to whom my mother would open up as much as she would with Viv.

Cancer and Stress

Cancer and Stress

Stress may not cause cancer directly, but it can suppress the immune system’s ability to recognize and destroy harmful invaders like cancer cells. In a recent interview, Dr. Heather Yeo, a colorectal surgeon and surgical oncologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, discussed how stress can weaken the immune system and make it harder for the body to fight cancer.

Dr. Yeo adds that research suggests stress may slow recovery following surgery and increase the likelihood of a recurrence. According to Dr. Yeo’s explanation to SurvivorNet, “your body has a hard time healing and cancer takes advantage of that” when your immune system is compromised due to an overabundance of stress hormones.

There is no doubt, she argues, that stress and your immune system affect your body and your body’s likelihood of recovering. Many patients, she added, worry that their own anxiety or stress is what’s causing their disease. “I tell my patients all the time, you can’t blame yourself or look back.
