That's exactly what I was going to post, Boris. Poor George and Ringo. And John doesn't have it very good either.

Ringo's daughter returning to Hub for treatment
by Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa

Monday, November 12, 2001

Former Beatle Ringo Starr, who kept a brave vigil at his daughter Lee's bedside when she battled a brain tumor in 1995, is returning to Brigham & Women's Hospital with Lee because her cancer has recurred.

``It's too bad,'' said our spy across the pond. ``Everyone feels for this girl.''

Lee Starkey, the 31-year-old daughter of the Beatles drummer and his former wife, the late Maureen Cox Tigrett, underwent surgery for a rare form of brain tumor called ependymoma at Brigham & Women's in 1995. Dr. Peter Black, the head of neurosurgery at the hospital, performed the operation.

Following the delicate cranial procedure, Lee and her family were in Boston=20
for six weeks so she could receive daily 8-minute radiation treatments.

Although Lee's prognosis at the time was very good, she returned to Boston with her dad and his wife, Barbara Bach, two weeks ago for tests at Brigham & Women's.

Sources say the tumor has returned and she will have to come back to Boston for a series of treatments.

Lee was referred to the Boston hospital in 1995 after she was rushed to the posh London Clinic to have fluid removed from her brain. The drummer's daughter, who nursed her mother during a long and losing battle against leukemia in 1994, fell ill shortly after her mother's death.

Maureen Cox Tigrett was diagnosed with leukemia just as her husband, ex-Hard
Rock Cafe guru Isaac Tigrett, opened his flagship House of Blues in L.A. (Tigrett once jokingly referred to his late wife as his ``greatest piece of Beatles memorabilia.``)

Ringo is the third member of the fab Four to be touched by cancer. Paul McCartney's wife, Linda, died of breast cancer and George Harrison was diagnosed with lung cancer and a brain tumor earlier this year. John Lennon
was shot dead by assassin M*** D**** C****** outside his apartment in 1980.
