Pro Football Hall of Famer and FOX Sports analyst Terry Bradshaw, citing recent questions about his work on the studio show, revealed on Sunday that he has spent much of the last year battling cancer - but that today he is cancer-free.
“Last week on the show, I ran out of breath and (co-host) Howie (Long) helped me up, Bradshaw said, speaking on Fox NFL Sunday. "A lot of people have been asking what’s wrong with me, you know what’s happened to me, physically. …
"In November, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I went to the Yale University Medical Center and [underwent] surgery, treatment. As of today, I am bladder cancer free.”
Bradshaw, 74, said he has been dealing with two different forms of cancer, dating back to last November. He explained that he chose to make the announcement due to questions about his on-air appearance.
