Speaking on Grilling JR, Ross discussed his upcoming treatment.

"I'm gonna start doing radiation soon. I have to do 22 radiation treatments. I somehow have to figure out how to do it on consecutive days if I can do it every day for three weeks or something, maybe longer. It's inevitable. It's coming and I have to deal with it. I don't plan on missing any work according to my doctors. It's just a matter of dealing with the issues, grit your teeth, and moving on. I really appreciate all the fans who have reached out on social media, giving me their encouragement and prayers. I didn't get the worst kind of skin cancer. It's part of the journey and I'll deal with it, it's just a pain in the ass to get all these treatments. The good thing is there is no chemotherapy, so that helps with all the aftereffects and things of that nature. I'm just handling it and dealing with it. I've dealt with more and will continue to persevere," he said.

Ross will undergo treatment in Jacksonville as opposed to Oklahoma as he's four minutes away from the Mayo Clinic and around the best doctors.

Fightful would like to wish Ross the best in his upcoming treatments.
