Long-time ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale announced Wednesday that he was cancer free after lengthy battles with lymphoma and melanoma

"Dr Rick Brown just notified me with my results of my major Pet Scan & told me news I wish EVERY cancer patient can hear," Vitale posted Wednesday on his verified Twitter account. "He said 'Dick u have gone from being in remission to being CANCER FREE' ! Thank u to ALL of YOU that have sent me (prayers)."

In August 2021, Vitale, 83, announced that he had beaten melanoma, which had been diagnosed earlier that year. Just two months later, however, Vitale said tests conducted over a three-week period had revealed a lymphoma diagnosis, which appeared to be unrelated to his earlier cancer.
