Craig Sager ‘still fighting,’ told by doctors he has 3-6 months to live
Craig Sager, the longtime NBA reporter for Turner Sports, was informed by his doctors that a person with his condition usually has three to six months to live.
Sager revealed the latest development of his ongoing battle with cancer in a teaser of his interview with HBO Real Sports which will air Wednesday (Manila time).
“Well, you’ve got normally three to six months to live. But somebody may only have a week. Somebody may have five years. You could be the first one to five years,” Sager shared of what doctors told him, per Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated.
The 64-year-old Sager was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in April 2014.
He has gone into remission twice and each time, the cancer reappeared, as per Bleacher Report.
Sager said he will continue to fight and do “whatever it takes” to overcome his illness.
“Still kicking, still fighting. I haven’t won the battle. It’s not over yet. But I haven’t lost it, either,” Sager said. “There have been some victories and some setbacks, but I still have to fight it. I still have a lot of work to do.”
