However, Johnson did not have the more common adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. It was later discovered that he had a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour (PanNET), a less aggressive and more treatable form of the disease.[44] Johnson underwent radical surgery to treat his illness, and the doctors were hopeful that his prognosis would be good.[45] At the Q Awards on 22 October 2014, Johnson accepted the "Icon Award" and announced that he was "cancer-free" having undergone "removal of his pancreas, spleen, part of his stomach, small and large intestines and the removal and reconstruction of blood vessels relating to the liver". Johnson said: "It was an 11-hour operation… This tumour weighed 3kg – that's the size of a baby! Anyway, they got it all. They cured me. It's so weird and so strange that it's kind of hard to come to terms with it in my mind. Now, I'm spending my time gradually coming to terms with the idea that my death is not imminent, that I am going to live on". He added that he was still recovering from the operation and when asked what he would do next replied: "I don't know really".[43]

He wouldn’t know. He’s one of those rich cable subscribers and doesn’t know what those of us who have had nothing but OTA TV’s all of our lives.

Robert Clary, last of the ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ stars, dies at 96

Robert Clary, a French-born survivor of Nazi concentration camps during World War II who played a feisty prisoner of war in the improbable 1960s sitcom “Hogan’s Heroes,” has died on November 16, 2022. He was 96.
Clary died Wednesday of natural causes at his home in the Los Angeles area, niece Brenda Hancock said Thursday.

I don't remember this actor or his role on HH but it's fascinating to ponder his ability to portray a Nazi POW on a comedy show while being a survivor of a Nazi Jewish  concentration camp. Must have messed with his head.
