Roy Scheider Undergoes Treatment for Cancer

Jaws star Roy Scheider is recovering after undergoing hospital treatment to
combat cancer.

Scheider–who starred in a string of classic movies in the 1970s including
The French Connection, Klute and Marathon Man–underwent a bone marrow
transplant to treat multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells, last week.

And the 72-year-old, who ironically played a boss of a powerful company who
refuses to pay for a client’s bone marrow transplant in The Rainmaker, is now
relaxing following the treatment.

He tells the New York Daily News, “It went well. They harvested my stem
cells. I was my own donor.

“I won’t be bouncing around like I usually do this summer. I’ll be weak. I’ll
be recovering. But, to all those wishing me well, thank you very much.”
