AceShowbiz - Terry Bradshaw revealed that he has beaten cancer twice. Noting that he has undergone two surgeries after being diagnosed with bladder cancer and a form of skin cancer, the Pittsburgh Steelers legend said he now feels "like [his] old self."
The 74-year-old opened up about his health status on this week's "Fox NFL Sunday" broadcast. He said, "Last week on the show, I ran out of breath… A lot of people were 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."
Terry then divulged that he was diagnosed with bladder cancer in November 2021, which led him to have surgery at Yale University's medical center. While Terry's recovered from the first diagnosis, doctors found a Merkel cell tumor in his neck, "a rare form of skin cancer." It made him undergo another surgery at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
"Folks, I may not look like my old self, but I feel like my old self," the former professional football player told viewers. "I'm cancer free. I'm feeling great and overtime I'm going to back to where I normally am. I appreciate your prayers."
Terry's co-host Michael Strahan later chimed in, "I gotta say, TB, and everybody here, we know what you've been going through, and you are the ultimate teammate, and you know we love you, and you hold this show together. He added, "Regardless of all that, we're just so happy that you're here, and we're happy that you're cancer free."
"And I think you're gonna give a lot of hope to a lot of people out there who are going through something very similar,"Michael continued.
