“I wanted to share because while it’s been a year of profound loss and tragedy for so many of us," he wrote. “This is good news. Something to smile about. Something to shout about.”

“Cancer is something most of us have no control over," he added. "We can only control our responses to it, which includes being proactive about our healthcare both physically and mental ... Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives. Health is wealth -- true wealth.”
