WWE Hall Of Famer "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Fighting such an enemy is not easy, and in many moments you lose hope and faith. Duggan sent a message via social media and hopes to win this fight as well.
“I was just in there, brushing my teeth, preparing for bed, and feeling sorry for myself,” Duggan said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc. “It wasn’t long ago I had kidney cancer – I lost a kidney. Then just three years ago, I had all the heart problems, I was in the ICU unit and ended up having an ablation.
Then I had two other incidents where I was in the ICU unit, and then I get diagnosed with prostate cancer – they take out my prostate and I still have to have radiation because the cancer is still in me. “So I’m sitting there feeling sorry for myself, but then I looked in the mirror, and the man in the mirror is looking back hard at me.
And it [says] ‘Duggan, pull your head out! Stand up straight. And God bless that you have only 6 more weeks of radiation. God bless! Look around! Look around! You got it a lot better than a lot of other people. God bless! So Hacksaw, pull your head out!’.
And I’m gonna do it!”
Jim Duggan's message
Duggan believes that every person should go for medical examinations, “And folks, make sure, make sure, you get your physicals. Save your life”. Of course, it is not easy for him, especially after all he has survived but Duggan is a great fighter!
“The doctors are very optimistic that they caught it early,” Jim Duggan wrote on social media. “But still, it’s a very terrifying time for me and my family. The doctors also said to go ahead and live life, which we’re going to do”.
