Author Vince Flynn Has Prostate Cancer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Twin Cities author of the popular Mitch Rapp series of novels says he has prostate cancer, but that his prognosis is good.

Vince Flynn, on his fan Web site, says he was diagnosed with stage three metastatic prostate cancer in November. Flynn says his treatments are working well and that he feels better than he has in years.

Flynn says he’s started working on the next Rapp book, which should be out in October and that he’s working on a joint novel with Brian Haig.

Flynn’s first book, “Term Limits,” was released in 1997. Eleven other novels have followed. One of them, “Consent to Kill,” will become a movie.

    Mr. Flynn:
    I wish you the best. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1998 and have survived very well. Having been born also with severe heart defects, I can testify that one never knows when breakthroughs will come as I have also survived three heart surgeries and lastly a heart transplant.

    Vince Flynn, I have read all of your books and can’t wait for the next one. I sure hope that you researched all of your options before you chose your current therapy for the prostate cancedr. Are you aware of Proton Beam Rjadiation Therapy? I also had prostate cancer and researched it in detail. I chose the Proton Beam Radiation at MDANderson in Houston, and today I believe that I made the right choice. I wish your luck.
