Hugo Chavez has months to live due to end stage cancer

If you are willing to Trust Dan Rather again

An anonymous source told Dan Rather that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was suffering from metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that has entered its “end stage.”

Rather said on Wednesday that the information and quote came “from a highly respected source close to Chavez and who is in a position to know his medical condition and history,” according to HDNet. However, he acknowledge that he had only one source on this information.

Rather’s source said the prognosis for Chavez, who is running for reelection, was dire and he was not expected to live “more than a couple of months at most.”

Report: Chavez’s cancer has ‘entered the end stage’

Reporter’s note: There is only one source for identifying the cancer and for the prognosis quoted in the first part of the above story. This is a person whom your reporter has very good reason to trust, but you should know that there is only one source so far; no other immediate confirmation. All sources asked for and were granted anonymity because to reveal their names could place them in danger or, at the very least cost them their positions.
