Cool hat choice.
Check it out:
Dick Cheney says the gray Stetson cowboy hat he’s been wearing lately has to do with the heart transplant he got last year.
The former vice president said Friday he is taking two drugs to reduce the risk of organ rejection. The drugs leave him susceptible to skin cancer, he said, so his doctors tell him to wear lots of sunblock and to put on a wide-brimmed hat whenever he goes outside.
“It’s not because I suddenly decided I looked better with a Stetson. There are certain things you have to guard against,” he said.
Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney were in Cheyenne on Friday to promote his book about his struggles with heart disease since the 1970s. Cheney’s cardiologist, Jonathan Reiner, co-wrote the book, “Heart: an American Medical Odyssey.”
