Bret Hart Is Now Cancer Free

Last month WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart announced that that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and he would be undergoing surgery to combat the deadly diagnosis. Today, another WWE Hall of Famer, and long-time broadcaster, Jim Ross, announced that Bret Hart is cancer free, for now.  Bret Hart then conducted several interviews where he noted that he will still have to go for regular checkups to ensure that the cancer does not return.  He went on to make the following statement:

“I should be cancer free hopefully for the rest of my life. It’s just a matter of me slowly recovering and taking my time. I know a lot of fans out there have said a lot of prayers and stuff for me. I appreciate that. Right now it’s in God’s hands where I go from here. God willing, I think I’ve nipped it in the bud so to speak. I hope that I can have a full recovery. They say it could take anywhere from eight months to two years to recover from prostate cancer surgery. I am optimistic. I am a strong willed kind of person. I put a lot of faith in my doctors. I truly believe that I’ll get better and I’ll be 100%.”
