Harmon Killebrew is battling cancer

Post by PurpleMustReign » Thu Dec 30, 2010 4:19 pm


Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, in a statement released this morning, revealed that he is battling cancer.

His statement:

``I was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer. With my wife, Nita, by my side, I have begun preparing for what is perhaps the most difficult battle of my life. I am being treated by a team of medical professionals at the Mayo Clinic. While my condition is very serious, I have confidence in my doctors and the medical staff and I anticipate a full recovery.

This is sad news!! I wish him a fast, full recovery. Good luck Killer!!

This makes me sad. Harmon was -- and still is -- my hero. What a class act! All ballplayers should learn how to act from guys like Harmon.

I hope they caught this soon enough and he's able to make a full recovery.
