Just always wondered if NASCAR owner Rick Hendrick really ever had leukemia because at this time he was facing prison for mail fraud. In December of 1997, he was given a $250,000 fine, 12 months home confinement instead of prison,(because he "supposely" had leukemia) three years probation, and to have no involvement with Hendrick Motorsports during his year of confinement and could this have been a way to cover up the mess while at the same time to pull something good out of it? Tell us what you think, I say he never had leukemia!

A short time before the indictments were coming, Hendrick was "diagnosed" with Lukemia.
Shortly after his "Mansion Arrest" was completed, his Lukemia vanished. Of course he didn't have lukemia. Hendrick didn't lose any hair and he gained weight and that is impossible.
Hendrick then bought a presidential pardon brokered by Roger Clinton by making a large donation to the Clinton Library.
Hendrick played the system just like his race teams get away with cheating in Sprint Cup.

Not everybody doing leukemia treatments loses their hair. Also, many of the camcer meds swell patients. Not all patients show any signs of losing weight. It is ussually the meds that cause all the visual side effects-not the illness.
So YES!! It is entirely possible for him to have had the illness.
Don't judge someone by a bunch of misinformation. Just as important, don't spew that misinformation out as if it is fact.

You should go to the American Cancer Society website and get educated on Lukemia. You are just more Hendrick fans that wouldn't know the truth if it sat on your face.

Hendrick's relapse was nonsense. He had a bad urinary tract infection.

Do you even know who Rick Hendrick is, ahole, or it this just another reason to throw insults around? Why don't you tell us more lies?

You are a cowardly lying a-hole who hides behind the anonymity of the internet to spew your venom and get your jollies.

How's the weather in Buffalo this time of year? What's the matter, is your benefits check late again? Is that why you're all stirred up? Or did the old lady turn you down yet again. Why? Did the Viagra not work?

And you know that how living in Florida?
I lived smack dab in the middle of Nascar Land (ie; CONCORD not CHARLOTTE) I saw him, he was ill.
I saw owners, drivers, crew chiefs, crew members, shop guys all the time. It's not uncommon to run into these people at restaurants (especially at lunch time) or at the local establishments (barbers /beauty shops) hospitals, doctor offices.

So think about it. Did you see him? If you did didn't you think he looked ill?

Life Coach has to put his two cents worth in on alot of posts that he knows nothing about. He's just another yankee who thinks he knows everything and actually knows nothing.
By the way life coach. I HAVE REPORTED MYSELF TO THE WEBMASTER 82 PERCENT OF THE TIME.

if he didn't have cancer and said he did just to stay out of trouble.Then he will pay for it himself
and it really is not any body's bussiness.Maybe you need something to do since all you have to do is stick your nose where it does'nt belong.Remember what goes around comes around always.

I fully believe it was all orchestrated to keep RH out of jail. But he has not stopped there with is shenanigans. He has now purchased 5 consecutive Cup titles for Jimmie Johnson. It was once said that that the odds of any driver tying Cale Yarborough's record of three consecutive championships were astronomical at best. Now we are to believe that this bunch can win five? They have had repeated rules violations with only a finger wag of penalty. RH has bought his way out of trouble and into the record books yet again. A proven convicted criminal, but those idiotic HMS fans believe every word he says.

I have no idea whether or not Rick Hendricks had or has leukemia. I do know, however, that a person can appear to gain weight with the disease. I had a dear friend who lost her battle to leukemia a few years ago at a young age. During her battle, she appeared to gain a lot of weight, due to the medication side-effects, so, yes, it is definitely possible for a leukemia patient to show a weight gain. She did, however, lose her hair.

you know what.....who gives a rat's aXZ if he had Leukemia....He doesnt drive the cars, fill them with fuel and change the tires.... it's just his money... There is alot of heart and passion that goes into nascar and for us, who drive 65 on the interstate daily care whether the man had Leukemia and was "pardon" or not are not nascar fans!!!!! The only thing I have to say he did wrong was giving money to help fund the Clinton library, okay well two things..... bringing JR over was also a big mistake!!!!!

Chronic myelogenous leukemia in the early stage has few to no symptoms. In 1996 the only real treatments were interferon and bone marrow transplants. It was always assumed that Rick had a marrow transplant because Jeff Gordon ran a campaign for marrow registries during that time.
Matched related donor transplants have been known to cure CML. Since 1998 a new type of treatment (TKI) has put over 60 percent of CML sufferers into deep remission.

Hendrick is a crook and a liar.....don't know why he isn't running for a Senate or Congressional seat.
His lukemia was "convenient" to say the least and anyone can fake being sick if the doctors are on the payroll.
Rick was supposedly getting chemotherapy and every one loses most or all their hair going through that torture....but not Hendrick.
Seems no matter where you go Hendrick fans will never face the truth....they have excuses for everyone and everything.
Faking lukemia is nothing if you got everyone paid off.
jimmy Johnson was 0 in BGN and no better than average in IROC......how he can win 5 consecutive championships is suspect.

My dad died of leukemia one year ago today, they didn't even know he had it until it was too late. He went through chemo for prostate cancer a few years earlier, never lost his hair or anything--you morons picking on Hendrick, unless you have experience with these diseases shut yer clueless f_cking pieholes
