Now, Hacksaw Jim Duggan has shared the good news that he is once again cancer-free after beating cancer for the second time in his life. It was 20 years ago that Hacksaw Jim Duggan had cancer in his kidneys and now, he has successfully made it through a second battle with cancer, this time in his prostate.

"Hi everybody, I just want to share with everybody the great news I just received that my cancer was all encapsulated inside my prostate. They checked my bones that came out clear. The surrounding tissue came out clear, the lymph nodes came out clear. So, thank God, I'm cancer-free. You know, this was my second bout with cancer. 20 years ago I had kidney cancer. Now prostate cancer, folks remember early detection saves lives, and Merry, Merry Christmas. Ho, Ho, HOOO!"
