Warren Buffett announced  that he has stage 1 prostate cancer and will undergo radio therapy. He feels fine and the succession plan will still be in place.

At Investment Moats, we hope that Mr Buffett can make a swift recovery. This week is rather depressing as I got to know an acquaintance with family members suffering from same fate.

Cancer is getting very very common not just getting younger but for the older ones even though perhaps they have enjoyed a large part of a fruitful life, it is depressing to see them suffer from radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

I wonder if I would choose that path? I am a big believer of alternative treatment and I would probably gear my finance and insurance towards providing me with that option.
