Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy announced Saturday morning he's now cancer free.
"Friday was a very good day for me," he wrote on Twitter. "Had my first scan since going through treatments. Highly successfull. Cancer free for now and hopefully forever. So pleased !!!!"
This has not been the 65-year-old's first brush with cancer. He was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008, relapsed in 2013 and again twice in 2017.
Remy has been providing color commentary for the Red Sox since 1988, and played second base for the team from 1978 to 1984. He was also at the Red Sox' World Series championship parade to hype up the crowd.
He was a longtime smoker and has previously spoken out to encourage regular medical check ups.
