Terry Bradshaw took a moment on this week’s Fox NFL Sunday show to address concerns about his health, revealing he has had two surgeries in the last year after being diagnosed with bladder cancer and a form of skin cancer had been.
“I ran out of breath last week on the show… A lot of people were like, ‘What’s wrong with me? What happened to me physically?’ I just want to address it and let you know what’s been happening in my life,” Bradshaw began during a panel discussion on the show.
The 74-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers legend and NFL broadcasting titan went on to explain that he was diagnosed with bladder cancer last November. After surgery and treatment at Yale University Medical Center, the condition was safely resolved. In March, Bradshaw’s doctors discovered a Merkel cell tumor in his neck, “a rare form of skin cancer,” which was then also treated with another operation at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
“Guys, I may not look like the old me, but I feel like the old me,” Bradshaw continued. “I’m cancer free. I feel great and over time I will return to where I usually am. I appreciate your prayers.”
Viewers shared concerns about Bradshaw’s health following last week’s Fox NFL Sunday show, when the former quarterback appeared to be struggling while commenting on highlights of the game.
Bradshaw is one of the faces of Fox Sports, with a tenure as one of the network’s analysts dating back to the 1980s.
