Leukemia and Lymphoma are just two types of the many different blood cancers affecting thousands each year and celebrities are no exception.
Mickey Mantle Jr., Joey Ramone, and Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis were only a few of the famous souls who fell victim to the deadly disease. Other famous faces including Jack Wagner and Michael C. Hall, have managed to overcome their battle and are currently in remission. ITM recently caught up with the former “Dexter” star, Michael C. Hall, at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Hall sat down with ITM to star on an upcoming special series entitled, “Movies You Wanna Watch.” Hall revealed what it’s like to live in the public eye and promoted his latest film “Cold in July.”
