Dustin Hoffman’s Silent Victory Over Cancer Will Inspire You

Though not many fans are aware of it, Hoffman, who is currently 83, also survived throat cancer.Some celebrities opt to fight cancer in secret, while others use their illness as a chance to spread awareness.

It is important to accept this decision as it is highly personal. Hoffman’s representative Jodi Gottlieb told People in 2013 that although Hoffman kept his illness a secret, “it was detected early and he has been surgically cured.” By then, he was seventy-five.
