In January 1997, Herrera was diagnosed with a rare and usually fatal lymphoma. He underwent an autologous stem cell transplant at Sloan-Kettering and a donor transplant at MD Anderson Cancer Center, which made medical history. In remission for 10 years, he wrote “The Cancer War”, www.thecancerwar.com.

In October of 2005 Anthony testified for Senator Arlen Specter on stem cell research. He gave a lecture on “The Human Spirit” at MD Anderson, Sloan Kettering, and St. Jude’s in Memphis, TN. It can be viewed on www.anthonyherrera.org.

>> No matter how cartoony or silly the s/l I always looked forward to him every time he came back.

Me, too.

STILL really annoyed that James was left 'dead' on ATWT at the end (because James CAN'T die... there was ample proof of that)... so after all that, Henry's dumb Mom was able to kill him? And the final James Stenbeck story was with Tom Pelphrey as a brainwashed kid that BELIEVED he was James? Grr.

And no points to his final scenes with Babs (her months-long kidnapping there at the end). Hallucinations were not enough. I really wanted James alive, again. Oakdale could have been going up in a mushroom cloud, James driving away laughing... that would have been much preferable to me to seeing Bob turn off a globe-shaped desk lamp...

Herrera was a very nice man. I never met him face-to-face, but we did trade a few e-mails ten years ago or so...
