WWE Hall Of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan is staying motivated to beat cancer again.
Duggan was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year and had surgery last October to remove his prostate. Last month, he announced that he would get treatment for 8 weeks for 5 days per week but doctors are optimistic that they caught it early.
Duggan shared a video on Instagram where he discussed feeling sorry for himself regarding all of the health issues that he has gone through in recent years, but after looking in the mirror, he had a talk with himself and got some inspiration. He also noted that he has 6 more weeks of treatment.
“Hey, folks. I was just in there, brushing my teeth, preparing for bed, and feeling sorry for myself. 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’s ‘Duggan, pull your head out! Stand up straight. God bless that you have only 6 more weeks of radiation. God bless. Look around you got it a lot better than a lot of other people. God bless. So, Hacksaw, pull your head out. I’m gonna do it. Folks, make sure you get your physicals. Save your life.”
We send our best wishes to Duggan as he works to beat cancer again.
