None of us want to admit when we have a disease or sickness, but you have to face the hard truth, but we all have to be honest to ourselves to get well. Denial is harmful to ones health, but like Val states “it’s his business!”
Val Kilmer’s family is now speaking out about the “Top Gun” actor’s Christian Science faith is getting in the way of his health.
Here’s the details that Val is straight up denying:
TMZ reported Kilmer’s kin are worried sick that he has been ignoring a growing a tumor in this throat because followers of Christian Science typically shun medical treatment.
Sources told the site Kilmer has known about the tumor since the summer, but didn’t take any action.
The 55-year-old “Top Gun” actor over the weekend confirmed reports that he was taken to a hospital recently, but chalked it up to “a complication,” not a tumor, word of which he called “silly talk.”
Kilmer took to his Facebook account today to SLAM reports about his health because it’s his business NOT the world!
“USA TODAY is making a claim that my representative is more correct about the facts of my body than I am. That’ll be a first for entertainment history at large. Please direct any concerned friends you may have that want to know how I’m doing to this sight. You all know it’s me talking, and you all know if it’s different “facts” in USA TODAY they are not telling the truth because they are trying to sell a story that sells more magazines. Or whatever they sell nowadays. I’ve been quiet about my health because it’s my business. Even my weight has ended up demanding me to “respond” because my weight loss was presented in a negative way. So many important and crucial issues at hand, racism more out in the open trying to get buried again, religious ignorance and bigotry trying to wrap itself up in legitimate concerns of national and international safety, gun control represented again and again as something other than a fear based question. We all know our rights. We all know what’s been written as our rights. And we all have to answer new questions and apply our genius government to a new world. We know lots of things. We know too many millions yes millions of young men are in prison who could be helping and being helped by rebuilding our broken nation. We know however it happened and whoever made it happen, the failed drug war has put too many men of color act in chains and it must and will stop. We all know the questions and Some of the answers are very very simple and some are very very complicated. But one of the questions that isn’t importantly sure even to the faithful readers of USA TODAY, is whether my representative is more right about describing the up to the minute about my body. Let’s cross that off the list shall we. If you want to know something about me, write me here. I’ll hire someone and we will do live chats and interviews and written Q and A’s until you’re sick of me as USA TODAY would have you believe I am. I’ll start with the Facebook communication company tomorrow. I have a few friends into this selling of themselves on a professional level to turn to. I’m sure I can pick a cool one. And my “rep” USA TODAY mentions too is cool also. Maybe she can help get me into the 21st century communicating honestly and consistently with people who enjoy my work and deserve better than the no fact checking blogging that gets sold as legitimate news today to our grand lazy public. I don’t mean you. You haven’t a clue what was in the USA TODAY article. You were reading Wallace Stevens weren’t you….”
