The veteran actor has been diagnosed with the fourth stage of bone cancer. A week before, Alter was admitted in hospital for ‘body pain’ and after the entire test, his family came to know about his disease. While talking to Indian Express, Tom’s son Jemie Alter said, “It’s not a good time to talk. I will call you in the evening.”
