Schilling Says Cancer in Remission

Pitcher was on the storied 1993 Phillies team.

Curt Schilling, a member of that raucous 1993 Phillies team that won the penant, has announced that his cancer is in remission. 

Schilling announced the news Wednesday on social media. He thanked his Boston-based medical team.

He announced his diagnosis in February, saying he planned to “embrace this fight, just like the rest of them, with resolute faith, and head on.”

He hadn’t indicated the type of cancer or his prognosis, but has posted pictures of himself undergoing treatments.

Which makes it a good day for old Phillies.
