Jim Ross Thanks Fans For Outpouring Of Support Following Skin Cancer Diagnosis

JR is set for 22 bouts of radiation treatment

Jim Ross has expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the support and love shown to him in the wake of his skin cancer diagnosis.

JR revealed last month that he would be undergoing 22 bouts of radiation treatment after it was confirmed he was suffering with skin cancer following a CT scan. 

The iconic announcer has received numerous messages of support on social media since, something JR is immensely thankful for.

Speaking on the latest episode of the Grilling JR Podcast, he said: "Just know this, I feel great, I’ve got energy, I’m blessed to be here and as far as I’m concerned it’s a bump in the road to me.

"Radiation treatments, going to be 22 of them, it’s going to be a pain in the ass but so be it. If that’s what it takes for me to stay alive, I’m all in. I appreciate everybody supporting me in that regard, it’s nice to pick up Twitter and Facebook as well and see the kind words that are shared.

"It means a lot to me because sometimes when you’re by yourself and you’re dealt a bad hand,  you can make it worse if you’re not careful. I’m around my friends and my work at AEW is a life saver to me, I love going to work. It gives me a destination, something to do and I love the support of the fans as well.

"I’m going to try not to drop my end of the bargain and you’re going to get full of p*ss and vinegar JR every time I’m out there and the rest of that stuff is going to take care of itself. I do appreciate everybody, thank you so much, god bless everybody for your thoughts and prayers."
