Daymond John Reveals Recent Bout With Thyroid Cancer
Shark Tank host and FUBU boss man Daymond John just revealed on ‘Good Morning America’ that he took on an attack on his health head-on last year…and won.
According to NYDN, John told Robin Roberts — who had her own bout with breast cancer a few years back — that he found out he had a cancerous nodule on his thyroid during a routine health screening, and immediately sprang into action to fight it.
“They said you can take it out if you want, you can leave it in. I didn’t skip a beat. When I got some early detections, I understood that I had a challenge and if I would attack it now, then I wouldn’t let it attack me.
I’m good, and I want to share this with people because that’s what success is. It’s staying in your family’s lives, it’s being around. I want to be there for (my daughters) to keep yelling at me and ignoring me.”
He also urged everyone to stay up on their health screenings to make sure they can catch any issues like that early as well, and tackle it head on to make sure you have a chance of beating it before it’s too late:
“There’s a saying — a man with his health has a thousand dreams. A man without his health only has one.”
Good for him! Everyone make sure you stay on top of your health to the best of your ability.
