Ted Kennedy Lost His Battle With Cancer
Three days after scoring a goal against Portsmouth, the Curse of Aaron Ramsey began. On August 25, 2009, American Senator Ted Kennedy lost his 15-month fight against cancer. Barack Obama, the American President at the time, lamented the “passing of an extraordinary leader.”
Three weeks after heading into the great unknown, Kennedy’s memoir, True Compass was published. It was an instant hit, taking the top spot on the New York Times Best Seller list. In a matter of months, it was reported to have sold half a million copies.
