Wall Street titan.
Teddy Forstmann continuing his battle with cancer and there is some good news but also.
Some concerns Charlie Gasparino has more forest apparently so what is the prognosis well.
You know I don't know but I can tell you some of the good news is that.
Associates are telling me that the people talked to Teddy directly.
Are telling me that you know the tumor shrinking that the initial treatment appears to be working.
He is going to work on a fairly regular basis but you know here's the did downside and what we're we're we're finding out right now this is what Teddy some friends out there number one.
He's battling a that's the same type of brain cancer that Teddy Kennedy can't remember the former.
Senator from from Massachusetts who did not win him back -- not win his battle.
A little more than a year after being diagnosed yet to be kept Teddy Kennedy died a much that's gonna happen here this -- fighting.
Like hell I mean he's really -- -- he's on a very aggressive treatment.
But they've concluded it's the same type of cancer.
One of the other problems is that you know -- minutes is when you tell -- difference is very angry at his New York doctors.
That -- misdiagnosed as for about a year knows what's kind of very soon here is that per year.
His New York -- still he had meningitis or something like that they did not think.
Brain cancer -- he was going for many tests then he goes to the Mayo Clinic this thing you know he's not feeling well.
And the Mayo Clinic to -- basically diagnosis and with approved a fairly late stage brain cancer and as nice as that same with the saints.
Similar to that that -- -- which Teddy Kennedy so.
The the issue here -- when we do these stories it's you know this -- a major player but we'll see where the company ING this big sports marketing company.
And this is where when you talk to friends of Teddy he has his concerns.
To meet these -- legacy he's a great turnaround artist you know gulfstream was one of these major turnarounds many other companies.
He wants ING to be in that sort of in that job for a it's doing fairly well he believes there's more to go.
The question is and what he wants he wants to be around to make that happen and obviously you know like -- said.
He's fighting like hell he's not just gonna roll over and put this kill -- -- he's fighting like hell but you know it is an uphill battle.
He he stayed aggressive treatments and sometimes it doesn't equal being able to work your way through because it's quick.
And it's hard hitting -- at -- that knocks you off your feet.
Last time you and I spoke he was continuing to go into the office and work is he gonna continue trying to get through the tree yes yes they tell McGrady is pretty engaged it's hard.
It's not easy people let's see him saying you know it's if if -- listen this is of is this hurts it's not easy to go to work when you getting this type of treatment.
But he is listen this guy's a tough guy -- -- -- that is new in my I knew very well.
Is a tough tough man Charlie this is a tough question to -- it's touchy but you know since he's so identified mr.
foursome with ING and they are dealing with the client and their relationships has there been any kind of issue with that any kind of question with a client for their investors and things like that because again he is so much identified with and that's the Steve Jobs question.
Priced from left thinking yeah I mean it but it's it -- for it's important pertinent question if you're an investor -- this is not a public company is a private company but they have investors and it's part of what goes on in the business world.
And you know it's unclear right now.
Teddy is splitting duties with a guy named Mike Dolan was operational guy there.
The real question is does this is there's someone with his vision -- could step in issues if they have to.
I will tell you that he intends to be around for a -- but this these guys -- as I'm pointing out -- this is an uphill struggle.
The and I energies in the growth position -- a -- getting into a lot of different.
Areas you know revenue streams more so it is represented happens I mean they've got a lot of new things go overseas right I mean you know there's little question about that no question about it and get moving in -- you're working with sports teams on there -- from their ticket operations to the real marketing and their own branding and whatnot so.
Right and that's what Teddy is telling people that this is unfinished business yeah I NG.
And that's what -- that's one of the things that really start -- really weird.
The most friends -- edit any good -- Laurie -- anybody can beat it it's going to be this guy but apparently it is enough about right okay.
