VIDEO: NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe has revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but is now in remission

NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe has revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but is now in remission. (Read More Here).

The 54-year-old opened up about his health journey on “FOX NFL Sunday,” saying that detecting the disease early may have been what ultimately saved his life.

His decision to speak out comes after he was approached by pharmaceutical company Janssen to take part in their campaign to encourage men — particularly Black men — to take regular tests for prostate cancer, which is the most commonly diagnosed illness in men of color.

While Janssen was not aware that Sharpe had been diagnosed with prostate cancer when they asked him to partner with them, he says the opportunity ultimately allowed him to help raise awareness on a serious health matter that has already caused the death of his father and other family members. When asked by Fox co-host Curt Menefee if he was cancer-free now, Sharpe replied, "I am cancer-free right now and I feel so good."
