Jim Duggan has faced health battles in recent years
The WWE Hall of Famer has not been without his health struggles in recent years as he has publicly discussed his battles with prostate cancer.
In an interview from November 2022, Duggan addressed his latest bout of the disease while sharing the happy news that he was cancer free again:
“I had my prostate taken out last October and I thought hopefully that had taken care of everything, but I got another PSA test, found out that the cancer was still in me. I was very disappointed to say the least. I was really down for a little while, but had to go back in and get radiation. I did eight weeks of radiation treatment, but came out, rang the bell. I’m cancer-free, thank the Lord.”
“Thank goodness I didn’t have to do that [chemotherapy]. Chemo is so much worse than radiation. Radiation was almost like an X-ray. You hardly felt anything, you didn’t hear anything.”
“I know it’s a terrifying deal for me and my whole family when everybody hears that, but early detection can save your life. This is my second bout with very aggressive cancers and I’m here to talk about it. So, get your physical, folks.”
Everyone at TJR Wrestling continues to send their warm wishes to Jim Duggan for a full and speedy recovery.
