Curt Schilling has cancer
February 7 , 2014
World Series hero Curt Schilling revealed that he has been diagnosed with cancer. He hasn't commented on further details about the severity and type and there are no reports regarding him being on the air next season.
"With my incredibly talented medical team, I'm ready to try and win another game." he said. "My father left me with a saying that I've carried my entire life and tried to pass on to our kids: Tough times don't last. Tough people do."
Schilling's wife was diagnosed with cancer back when he won his first World Series, which famously led him to give birth to an awareness group for the disease.
