Roger Ebert Has His Jaw Reconstructed

Following a battle with jaw cancer, Roger Ebert not only lost his voice, but the lower half of his face. “I studiously avoided looking at myself in a mirror,” Ebert writes on his blog Wednesday. Now, his jaw has been reconstructed. It was a “two-year process that has now resulted with my coming into possession of a silicone prosthesis,” Ebert, 68, explains. “This device [fits] over my lower face and neck and colored to match my skin.”

But Ebert, who has been open about the facial procedures he had to undergo during his painful battle, doesn’t expect people to think he’s back to normal.

“I will wear the prosthesis on the new television show – that’s not to fool anyone, because my appearance is widely known,” he says. “It will be a pleasant reminder of the person I was for 64 years.”

“Symbolically, it’s as if my illness never happened and, hey, here I still am, on the show with these new kids,” he adds. “When people see the ‘Roger’s Office’ segment, they’ll notice my voice more than my appearance.”

Awww…damn, at least they were able to make a prosthesis to fit his face…

    Wow. It does look a lot better. I truly had no idea this man was sick. I just remember Gene Siskel (sp.) p@ssing away, but I don’t recall hearing much after that. Well hopefully he over came the cancer and can get back to a somewhat normal life.

  • The Truth

    His African-American wife of almost 20 years always stood by his side and never gave up on him. She looks like one of them southern women too, that can cook and all. But when she talks she doesn’t sound southern. Too bad he can’t eat ever again.
