Great news for Stosh and his fans!


It’s good, make that great news for Chicago Blackhawk, Hall of Famer, Stan Mikita. Stan, who was diagnosed with oral cancer (stage one) a while back, spoke on Friday.

“It looks very clean,”  “That’s what the doctors told me, and I am very thankful. Jill and I always had a happy home, but it’s even happier now.” 

Stan, the all time Hawks leading points scorer and Ambassador, also added this,

“I was told at the start that the outlook was good,”. “What they do now is amazing. The doctors, nurses and oncologists who treated me have been unbelievable. It’s been an emotional time for me, and after I went in the other day to be examined, and got the results, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. My weight is still down, but I’m gaining a few pounds back, and my voice is stronger.”

Good ‘Ol number 21, who had noticeably lost some weight after the 30 + radiation treatments, was definitely in good spirits.Then in the usual Stosh sense of humor he added,

“I’m playing some golf, if that’s what you call it.”

Continued good luck Stan, from myself and all your fans!
