Roger Ebert dies at age 70, succumbs to long battle with cancer

Roger Ebert has passed away at the age of 70 after a long battle with cancer

Famed movie critic Roger Ebert has succumb to cancer after a long battle. The Chicago Sun reported today that Roger Ebert passed away after battling thyroid and salivary gland cancer for the better part of a decade. His final blog post, penned Tuesday, alerted readers that his cancer had returned as a result of a hip fracture suffered in December.




The Chicago Sun, the newspaper for which he worked, has written a long piece recapping his life and achievements. It's a long, but good, read and I highly suggest you read it on the Sun's website.


I'm sure our readers will join us in wishing his family the best. He is survived by his wife, a step-daughter and two step-grandchildren. Our thoughts go out to his family.
