Battling Pneumonia At 95? Marvel's Star Stan Lee Doesn't Intend To Give Up
At the beginning of February, the fans of Stan Lee got upset when the 95-year-old rushed to hospital because of shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat. Weeks later, the Marvel legend reassured his admirers, saying that he was doing OK. But now, the illness strikes back.
Look who’s back! Thanks to all the True Believers for their well wishes and support. #FlashbackFriday to earlier this week when I took a break to put my John Hancock on some phenomenal posters for @HeroComplexArt in the POW office. pic.twitter.com/n00m0xKPbD

Following his hospitalization, Stan Lee shared a video where he opens up about what he is going through right now. As we all know, pneumonia in elderly has alarming survival rates, but the star doesn’t intend to give up. As he says:
I have a little bout of pneumonia I’ve been fighting, but it seems to be getting better.
He then proceeds to thank all of his admirers for heartwarming e-mails and photos. It seems Lee really misses his group of fans as he is waiting forward to recovering and meeting with them soon (or at least having fun over the Internet).
But I want you all to know I’m thinking of you, and I hope you’re all doing well, and I miss you all.
In spite of his health issues, Lee’s devotees hope he will fight the disease. Upon getting to know the news, they rushed to Twitter to support the star, wish him speedy recovery, and shower them with the warmest words possible.
