Tom Brokaw, on 'Late Show,' says 'pleased' with prognosis

Tom Brokaw will be on "Late Show with David Letterman" Thursday, and there are  two pieces of good news: 1) He looks great; 2) He says his prognosis (he has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma) is good. 

Quotes and a clip: 

“Well, I’m actually being treated for something called multiple myeloma and it’s been going on since August and it got out last week. As you know, I was keeping it as private as I possibly could, which I intend to continue doing. I’m very pleased with the progress and that’s about as far as I want to go. There are a lot of other people out there.” (Audience applause.) “I do want to say one thing. A lot of people are going through what I’m going through, and they don’t have the advantages I do. I’m so conscious of that every day because it involves the whole family and it’s tricky and it becomes a big strain. In our case, we’ve got the resources and access and I’ve got this fabulous family, and so I am much more aware of what other families are going through and I think we all have to be, as a matter of fact.”
