‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan shares update on battle with cancer

Duggan is currently undergoing radiation treatment.

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan has provided an update on his battle with prostate cancer. 

Duggan had surgery to remove his prostate last October. He then announced in May that he will be undergoing radiation treatment as the cancer had returned. 

In a video he posted to Instagram recently, Duggan spoke about having to do six more weeks of radiation treatments. 

“Hey folks, I was just in there brushing my teeth, getting ready for bed, feeling sorry for myself. It wasn’t that long ago I had kidney cancer, I lost a kidney. Then just three years ago, I had all the heart problems, where I was in the ICU unit and ended up having an ablation. Then I had two other incidents where I was in the ICU unit, and then I get diagnosed with prostate cancer, they take out my prostate and I still have to have radiation because the cancer is still in me."

"I’m sitting there feeling a little sorry for myself. Then I look in the mirror, and the man in the mirror is looking back hard at me. And it’s ‘Duggan, pull your head out! Stand up straight! God bless that you have only 6 more weeks of radiation. God bless that you only have six more weeks of radiation. Look around, look around, you got it a lot better than a lot of other people, God bless. So, Hacksaw, pull your head out and I’m going to do it and folks, make sure you get your physicals, save your life.”
