NFL legend Terry Bradshaw revealed he had been secretly battling cancer twice over the last two years during Fox NFL Sunday’s broadcast, saying he was now “cancer free” and “feeling like my old self.”
The 71–year–old broadcaster, who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1970 to 1983, said he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2018 and then again earlier this year.
“I’ve had some health challenges,” Bradshaw said. “When I was diagnosed with colon cancer last year, I knew I was OK, but I also knew I couldn’t get back to my old self until I fixed my back.”
He underwent major surgery on his back earlier this month, saying it was “the best thing I could have done.”
He said his recent “cough that wouldn’t go away” turned out to be pneumonia, but he was now “healthy as a horse.” “When you’re 71 and you get two cancers in two years, you don’t take it lightly,” Bradshaw said.
