Bret Hart is a legend in the wrestling world, a popular sports star and entertainer who capture the minds of kids and young adults across the world. Today he is a man who has highlighted an issue of the ordinary man which needs addressing. Prostate cancer.
The former seven time WWE World Heavyweight Champion has promised to stand up to his biggest fight yet, the fight against cancer as he prepares for surgery. Hart, now 58, states that he goes in “with the hope of defeating this nemesis once and for all”. He bravely posted the news on his Facebook page.
Hart has previously had medical issues when he suffered a stroke back in 2002. He plans to “defeat the odds” for a second time. As when he was an elite athlete in the ring he will have just as many supporting outside of the ring with his battle against cancer.
One of the greatest role models in sports entertainment, the Canadian icon remains “the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be”. He also made pink look masculine. Let’s hope he comes through well.
