Curt Schilling: I’m In Remission After Successful Cancer Treatments


After a nearly five-month battle with cancer, former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling had some very good news for his supporters Wednesday.

Schilling, who will turn 48 in November, announced Feb. 5 that he had been diagnosed with cancer and received an outpouring of support as he began to undergo treatments.

The three-time World Series champion underwent successful surgery less than a week later on Feb. 11, but he had to return to the hospital for radiation treatments and additional surgery in early March.

Schilling finally finished his radiation treatments in mid-April, celebrating with his wife, Shonda, before returning home from the hospital for the first time in over a month.

The news of Schilling’s remission quickly was met with well wishes¬†from current Red Sox and former teammates, who took to Twitter just moments after the announcement to congratulate him on the good news.
