BILLIONAIRE AIMS TO OVERCOME CANCER

Billionaire Sam Walton, who controls one of the biggest fortunes in America, says he has a better than even chance of winning his battle with bone cancer.

Walton, 71, founder and chairman of Wal-Mart Stores, has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of bone cancer, and is receiving treatment in M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston. After a weekend at his home here, where Wal-Mart keeps its corporate offices, he will return to the hospital today to resume chemotherapy and radiation treatments on his back and on his bones, which he said have become soft and developed holes because of the cancer.
