LOS ANGELES, Aug 16, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg says his prostate cancer is now at "an almost negligible level."

Fogelberg, who had hits with "The Leader of the Band" and "Longer," has been undergoing treatment for 14 months, E! Online reported Tuesday.

Fogelberg, 54, of Pagosa Springs, Colo., posted on his Web site he and his wife, Jean, are "terribly encouraged to have come so far, so fast."

"It has certainly been the most trying experience of our lives and yet has proven to be one of the most illuminating as well."

Fogelberg said he has "no plans to return to the concert stage or the recording studio in the foreseeable future."

He thanked fans for their well wishes, posting: "I am quite certain that the love and prayers that have been directed to us from all over the world have had a tangible and potent healing effect. It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years."
