Hacksaw Jim Duggan Announces Return of His Cancer

Wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan announced on Instagram that he is currently battling cancer again.

Duggan stated that he will be undergoing another round of radiation treatments soon that will take around eight weeks to finish. Duggan also stated that his doctors are currently very optimistic of his chances of success due to his cancer’s return being caught early.

“Hi folks. I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures and videos of our travels. We’ve been having a great time. But, reality is here and I’m afraid I have some bad news. It seems like my cancer treatment is not over, even after the removal of my prostate last October. Tomorrow, I’m having my second hormone shot and Tuesday, I’m being set up for radiation treatment, which will be eight weeks, five days a week. But the doctors are very optimistic. They caught it early, but still it’s a very terrifying time for me and my family. But the doctors also said to go ahead and live life, which we’re gonna do so, I’m afraid — I’m gonna make most shows but some shows, I’m gonna have to postpone or cancel and I’m sorry about that but that’s the way it’s gotta be and I’m gonna be posting this whole ordeal as I go through it so tomorrow, on my way to the doctor, I get the hormone shots, I’m gonna be posting that. After the shots, I’ll be posting that. Throughout the whole experience, I’ll be posting it. Hopefully, it will help someone out there because I know a lot of men, a lot of families are gonna go through this and I know it’s gonna help me. You folks have helped me through an awful, awful lot over the years, many times before and sharing this with you is gonna help me get through this, so thank you and please don’t feel sorry for me. Be thankful they caught it early and thoughts and prayers are more than welcome and remember, I’ll get through this. Thanks very much folks.”

Duggan revealed this past October that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and was cancer free this past December following treatments.
