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. [tweet align=’center’]

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. [tweet align=’center’] [tweet align=’center’]
