SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
MLW star, Richard Holliday, announced on Tuesday that he has been battling cancer.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Holliday confirmed his battle with stage four Hodgkin’s lymphoma and talked openly about the diagnosis. “It was earth-shattering, devastating,” Holliday stated about hearing the news. “But I knew right then I needed to change my mindset. The mind powers the body, so I needed to stay positive. I was reassured by my doctor that I could beat this, and I believe I am going to beat this.
“Mentally, right now, I am ready. Physically, I know it’s going to take some time. But I will be back,” he said. “This process works as long as you stay positive and I’m going to beat it.”
