Usually true, but in his case it was caught super early. If he'd decided to undergo treatment when they first discovered it then the expected survival rate is over a decade.
Instead he tried to treat it with some hippie fruit juice diet. By the time he realized that there have been no peer-reviewed double-blind studies to verify the efficacy of hippyism, months had gone by and the disease had progressed to the point that it could no longer be treated effectively.
Oh, someone told me that he was trying to do homeopathic thing, I thought he just went the Andy Kaufman route. But I didn't know they caught it early enough to have a chance to treat it properly. That's pretty horrible then.....
