My grandpa died of prostate cancer (though I was too young to remember anything about him anyways), so I really, really want Mr. Prowse to get well soon. :(

my grandpa passed away due to that as well, was 11yrs old at the time, the father figure in my life since I didn't know my father. Either way I hope David Prowse kicks some serious ass, may the force be with him.
