Give thanks: NASCAR announcer Steve Byrnes shows ‘progress’ in cancer battle

1 Comment

One of the nicest guys in NASCAR media, Steve Byrnes of Fox Sports, is also one of the classiest.

As Byrnes of continues to do battle with a second bout of head-and-neck cancer, he not only offered friends and fans a promising new update on his fight with Stage 4 cancer, he also took time to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Here’s Byrnes’ tweet from Wednesday evening:

A PET (positron emission tomography) scan is a type of imaging test that searches for cancer cells in the body.

This is Byrnes’ second go-round with cancer. He initially appeared to have won his first battle earlier this year, but the disease came back with a vengeance nearly two months ago.

Still, Byrnes is a fighter and we pray there will be even more good news coming ahead.

Have a good Thanksgiving with your family, Steve. We’re thankful we know you and look forward to seeing you back at the track soon, strong and cancer-free.
