Vitale announced back in December of last year that he was diagnosed for a second time with Lymphoma. The 82-year-old college basketball analyst told ESPN at the beginning of this process that the plan was to treat the cancer with steroids and chemotherapy. We’re thrilled to learn the treatment did its magic and Mr. Vitale is finally headed home!
“If you see me, please just give me a fist bump and say a prayer that I can return from being 82 years old to acting like I’m 12,” Vitale wrote for ESPN. “Thanks so much for the love.” Looks like the prayers worked for the basketball legend.
