Designer Tommy Hilfiger is preoccupied with something more important than fashion these days. His brother is trying to beat brain cancer.
"My last MRI looked great, and I feel good," Billy Hilfiger said in Sunday's editions of the New York Daily News. "I have great friends, a great family, and they tell me I have a positive attitude."
Hilfiger had brain surgery in December, shortly after his cancer was diagnosed. He underwent chemotherapy every four weeks for three months and then radiation every day during May and June.
The tight Hilfiger clan "really pulled together in a powerful way," Tommy Hilfiger said. "We were praying, hoping and thinking positively, that is probably as important as anything else."
Billy Hilfiger, 42, plays in two rock bands and runs a small urban landscaping company.
