tom brokaw reveals bone cancer diagnosis remains very optimistic

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!!

In the statement he released today, he revealed:

“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!!
