This is so sad!!!
Legendary newsman Tom Brokaw just revealed that he has cancer!!!
Apparently the author, journalist, & NBC News Special Correspondent was diagnosed with multiple myeloma — a cancer that affects blood cells in bone marrow — way back in August at the Mayo Clinic.
Ugh!!! What a horribly unfortunate turn of events!
Thankfully, the 74-year-old South Dakota native hasn't let the bad medical news get him down. Tom is DETERMINED to kick cancer's ass!!
“With the exceptional support of my family, medical team and friends, I am very optimistic about the future and look forward to continuing my life, my work and adventures still to come… I remain the luckiest guy I know… I am very grateful for the interest in my condition but I also hope everyone understands I wish to keep this a private matter.”
We're glad you're keeping your sunny disposition, Tom — hopefully you get better soon!!
