One of the co-hosts of “FOX NFL Sunday,” Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, disclosed he had battled cancer twice in the previous year.
NFL fans who were watching the pregame program last week had some issues, which Bradshaw addressed on Sunday’s edition before the rest of the schedule began.
“Last week on this show, I ran out of breath, and Howie (Long) helped me up. And a lot of people are asking what’s wrong with me, what’s happened to me physically. I just want to address it and let you know what has happened in my life,” the former Pittsburgh Steelers star said.
“In November, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I went to the Yale University Medical Center – surgery, treatment. As of today, I am bladder-cancer free. That’s the good news.
“Then in March, feeling good. I had a bad neck. I get an MRI. Now we find a tumor in my left neck. And it’s a Merkel cell tumor, which is a rare form of skin cancer. So I had that surgery done at M.D. Anderson in Houston.
“Folks, I may not look like my old self, but I feel like my old self. I’m cancer free, I’m feeling great. And over time, I’m going to be back to where I normally am.”
Michael Strahan, a former New York Giants player, referred to Bradshaw as the “perfect teammate.”
