Tom Brokaw: My Cancer is in Remission

When former NBC Anchor Tom Brokaw announced last year that he was battling cancer, he was not as straight forward as to how bad it really was.

But on Sunday, Brokaw had some good news to report,  he is officially in remission from cancer. 

In a statement posted to NBCNew,Brokaw celebrated the prognosis. 

"A year ago my future was more uncertain than I cared to acknowledge but now I face the New Year with very encouraging news," he said. "The cancer is in remission and I will shortly go on a drug maintenance regimen to keep it there."

The veteran newsman in February divulged that he had been diagnosed with myeloma last summer. In September, he said that the cancer was "mostly gone."

Good news indeed.
