    Correction: Dan Fogelberg never announced that his treatments for prostate cancer had “cleared him of it.” He expressed his gratitude to fans in his August 2005 letter, saying ” I am quite certain that the love and prayers that have been directed to us from all over the world have had a tangible and potent healing effect.” and i’m sure they did – – but he did not say the healing included being cleared of the cancer.
