The actor, singer and activist was revealed to have had the condition days before the official news in early September this year via SantaFeNewMexican.com.
In a statement on his website Russel Means Freedom, Means talks to his fans over his awaring illness and of his loyal and caring fanbase.
I never expected within my lifetime, I would experience such a world wide out pour of pure love. Believe me it goes a long way toward defeating this cancer.
I found out that I was literally days away from the tumor in my throat closing my windpipe and forcing me to have a tracheotomy which would have begun my spiral down to death.
The worst part would have been my deteriorating quality of life until I expired. It is nothing short of miraculous that we found the only two cancer treatments that can actually defeat this filthy disease.
However, Means noted some good news to shed light to; The tumor in my throat has diminished significantly. I have my voice back and my ability to swallow is back up to around 90 percent.
Thanks to Troublesome Truck for the alert.
