   The late actor Edward Herrmann’s (right) final project before  succumbing to brain cancer last month was narrating an upcoming documentary on the disease. The six-hour project will air over three evenings on PBS in March, and is based on Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies; a book by Siddhartha Mukherjee.

   Herrmann collapsed because of a seizure on the first day he came to work, and had to explain to filmmaker Barak Goodman that it was due to his terminal disease. Still, Herrmann was committed to do the work and complete this intensely personal production.

   The talented narrator is best remembered for his on-screen performances and narrations on various projects on PBS and the History Channel. He often portrayed Franklin D. Roosevelt. His voice is quite familiar to generations of television viewers.

   I suggest you honor Edward Herrmann’s legacy by watching this  informative program.
