    Ailing Bee Gees member Robin Gibb released a statement to the press on Thanksgiving (Nov. 24). Even though he is battling cancer, he was still very thankful.

    His statement is as follows:

    "I wish to thank my family, friends and fans and the many thousands of people who do not know me but have enjoyed Bee Gees music and have wished me well. I am very touched by your love, kindness and support. This concern from people all over the world has demonstrated the depth of feeling and love that the Bee Gees have achieved over the years. It is humbling and I take your prayers and good wishes for my health very seriously. I have been very unwell and am now on the road to recovery, and your prayers and wishes are a great tonic to me. I believe because of you I will get well and my deepest love goes out to you all."

    We are pulling for you, Robin!
