Don West is in the battle of his life and the former TNA/Impact Wrestling announcer shared some good news over social media.
The 57-year-old West has been dealing with brain lymphoma cancer and after months of treatment, he’s doing a lot better.
It was June 15 of this year when NewsRadio 560 KPQ (a radio station that West works at) shared a letter from West writing about his diagnosis as well as the treatment that comes with it. In July, West tweeted a message thanking family, friends and fans for their support while noting that it helped him a lot.
After eight weeks of chemotherapy and 13 treatments of radiation, West has shared that his cancer has gone into remission. West added that he is looking forward to returning to his radio show soon.
I want to give everyone an update
After 8 weeks of chemotherapy and 13 treatments of radiation my cancer is now in remission
Thank you for everyone’s prayers because they truly worked
I look forward to getting back on the radio doing what I love

West worked for TNA Wrestling when the company began in the summer of 2002. He was known for working on the Shop at Home Network and TNA executives loved the enthusiasm with which he spoke, so they thought he was perfect as a pro wrestling announcer. West worked for TNA for ten years as the main analyst sitting beside play-by-play man Mike Tenay.
During live events and tapings, West would help sell TNA merchandise due to his boisterous style and enthusiasm. After leaving TNA in 2012, he did return for the 2017 Slammiversary event to celebrate 15 years of TNA/Impact Wrestling.
We are all happy to see him doing much better. Best wishes and good health to Don moving forward.
