Cal Ripken announces he’s cancer-free after having prostate surgery in March
Cal Ripken, Jr. announced in a Zoom interview on Thursday that he has made a full recovery from prostate cancer.
Ripken was originally diagnosed in February before undergoing surgery at Johns Hopkins in March. The Baseball Hall of Famer was thankful he did not have to undergo radiation or chemotherapy to overcome the disease.
The longtime Oriole credited early detection due to scheduling a regular physical and spent much of his conversation with reporters encouraging others to get checked.
