I would like to extend my prayers and sympathy in regards to Merlins Mesothelioma Diagnosis. He was known to me mailnly thru Little House as this is still one of my favorite shows. i now own all of the seasons. My husband has Peritoneal Meso. He was diagnosed 4 years ago and thru many trials, treatments and much prayer he is doing well. I would like to give Mr. Olsen the name of the best research foundation and knowlegeable outfit around dealing with Meso patients and their families. Mesotheloima Applied Research foundation.

Biography

Merlin Jay Olsen (September 15, 1940 – March 11, 2010) was an American football player in the National Football League, NFL commentator, and actor. He played his entire 15-year career with the Los Angeles Rams and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 14 of those seasons, a current record shared with Bruce Matthews and Tony Gonzalez. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. As an actor he portrayed the farmer Jonathan Garvey on Little House on the Prairie. After leaving that series, he starred in his own NBC drama, Father Murphy, playing the title role of a foster dad posing as a traveling priest.
