Sure didn't do him much good, did it? He died at 64.
My maternal grandmother died at 65, and she was a smoker.

My uncle just died at 94. Had to give up playing tennis last year and
it broke his heart.

My paternal grandmother died at 99. She didn't smoke
and didn't waste her money on worthless supplements either.
She wasted it on a TV preacher, D. James Kennedy.

My Uncle spent his money on tennis. It became an obsession when he was
80, right before his grandaughter was born. She is now the women's
tennis coach at one of the Ivys.

Definition
By Mayo Clinic staff

Myelofibrosis is a serious bone marrow disorder that disrupts your
body's normal production of blood cells. The result is extensive
scarring in your bone marrow, leading to severe anemia, weakness,
fatigue, and often, an enlarged spleen and liver.

Myelofibrosis — also called agnogenic myeloid metaplasia or idiopathic
myelofibrosis — can occur at any age, although it mainly develops
after age 50.

Many people with myelofibrosis get progressively worse, and some
eventually develop a serious form of leukemia. Yet it's also possible
to have myelofibrosis and live symptom-free for years. Treatment for
myelofibrosis, which focuses on relieving symptoms, can involve a
variety of options.
