WWE Legend “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan has provided an inspirational update on his cancer battle as he continues his recovery.
The 68-year-old is undergoing radiation therapy while battling prostate cancer, the latest in a string of health problems.
Duggan has also previously struggled with heart and kidney problems, but he refuses to let his spirit beat.
In an upbeat video on social media, the wrestler told fans how he keeps himself going.
He said: “Hey guys I was just in there brushing my teeth getting ready for bed feeling sorry for myself.
“It wasn’t long ago that I had kidney cancer. I lost a kidney. Then three years ago I had all the heart issues where I was in intensive care and ended up having an ablation.
“Then I had two more incidents where I was in intensive care and then I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, they removed my prostate and I still need radiation because the cancer is still in me.
“I’m sitting here feeling a little sorry for myself.
“Then I look in the mirror and the man in the mirror looks at me hard.
“And it’s like, ‘Duggan, get your head out! Stand tall! God bless you only have six weeks of radiation left! God bless you only have six weeks of radiation left!

“Look around, look around, you’re doing a lot better than a lot of people. God bless you! So, Hacksaw, get your head out there and I’ll do it, and people make sure you get your exam , save your life!”
The struggling WWE icon had his prostate removed in October last year, leaving him briefly cancer-free.
But then he revealed to his followers online that the deadly disease had returned.
Duggan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011 and was one of the most popular artists for Vince McMahon’s company in the ’80s and early ’90s.
The powerhouse was also the winner of what was then the WWF’s first Royal Rumble in 1988.
