Aug 18, 2022

Finally, Dick Vitale is officially cancer free.

The iconic college basketball announcer revealed on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that he has officially been given the all-clear after multiple lengthy battles with cancer.

Vitale, 83, has battled cancer twice in the past year — first with melanoma last August and then again after he was diagnosed with Lymphoma in October. He started treatments and chemotherapy, and ended up missing most of last season.
