Back in February we learned long-time big league right-hander Curt Schilling had been diagnosed with cancer. He has been receiving treatment in the months since, and, on Wednesday, Schilling announced via Facebook that the cancer is officially in remission.
The type of cancer still has not been disclosed. Schilling's wife Shonda was diagnosed with stage-2 melanoma back in 2001.
Schilling, now 47, had been working as a television analyst with ESPN at the time of the diagnosis. He appeared at Fenway Park for the 10-year anniversary celebration of the 2004 World Series Champion Red Sox team a few weeks ago and appeared to be in good spirits despite the obvious physical toll of chemotheraphy.
