NEW YORK (CNN) -- Dana Reeve, the widow of actor Christopher Reeve, announced on Tuesday that she has lung cancer.
The following is a copy of her statement:
Based on the imminent release of a tabloid article regarding my personal health, my family and I have decided to release our own statement.
I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and am currently undergoing treatment. I have an excellent team of physicians and we are optimistic about my prognosis.
My family and I deeply appreciate the care and concern of our friends and supporters and trust that everyone understands our need and desire for privacy during this time.
I hope before too long to be sharing news of my good health and recovery.
Now, more than ever, I feel Chris with me as I face this challenge.
As always, I look to him as the ultimate example of defying the odds with strength, courage, and hope in the face of life's adversities.
