Baseball Slugger Killebrew Has Cancer


MLB.com:

Hall of Famer and Twins legend Harmon Killebrew has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Killebrew, 74, revealed the news in a statement on Thursday morning. He said that he was recently diagnosed and is being treated by a team of medical professionals at the Mayo Clinic.

While acknowledging that his condition is very serious, Killebrew said that he has confidence in his doctors and medical staff.

“I anticipate a full recovery,” Killebrew said in the statement.

The legendary slugger, who ranks 11th on the all-time home run list with 573, called the journey he now faces “perhaps the most difficult battle of my life.”

My prayers are with Mr. Killebrew and his family.
