Young Cancer Patient Receives Encouragement From Doyle Brunson

A young 15-year-old girl by the name of Margaret Hussman (pictured left) is in need of your encouragement, thanks to the heart-warming words of poker pro Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson. The legendary “Texas Dolly” wrote the following about this young cancer patient on his online poker room blog (

“There is a 15-year-old young lady named Margaret Hussman, a niece of a longtime friend, who has untreatable cancer and has less than 90 days to live,” read Brunson’s blog post. “My ex-roomate in college, Ray Hibler, called and asked me to write her an encouraging letter recounting my “terminal” battle with cancer 55 years ago. Margaret is a poker enthusiast and I’m certainly going to call. She is trying to spend her remaining days doing something new and enjoyable. Send Margaret an e-mail at [email protected] I know she will appreciate it. For all of us, there is no promise for tomorrow. Happy New Year and lets all have a great 2009!”

Margaret Hussman has been diagnosed with terminally cancerous Wilms’ tumors, located in the lower lobe of her right lung and right hip. Doctors have determined the tumors to be inoperable, giving her only three months to live.

On behalf of, Doyle Brunson, and everyone who has dealt with terminal illness – whether it be their own, or that of a friend or relative – I would like to encourage all who read this story to send an email to young Margaret Hussman.

Email Margaret at: [email protected]
