SMITH HART ANNOUNCES CANCER DIAGNOSIS By Mike Johnson on 2016-01-22 14:20:04
Smith Hart, the eldest of the Hart family children, announced via his Facebook page that he has been diagnosed with bone and prostate cancer. On his page, Hart, after noting all the deaths due to cancer recently, wrote, "This week my doctors confirmed that I have both prostate cancer and bone cancer. I have not yet received a full prognosis on what is yet to come nor my options for treatment. It is quite sad that despite the millions that have died from this tragic disease and the billions that have been raised for research that this ailment has yet to be eradicated from history. Given the diagnosis I will be spending my upcoming time focused on finishing and hopefully releasing my autobiography, which I anticipate to be a full and comprehensive look at my family, Stampede wrestling and some of the most notable moments in wrestling history as I was able to ride shotgun and have first-hand witness account to 66 years of the Hart families triumphs and tragedies. Thanks for the prayers, but hold on because I am not done fighting yet. I will update accordingly."
Hart, 67, wrestled in Stampede Wrestling as well as Puerto Rico and Europe over the course of his career.
