HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans owner Bob McNair says he's gotten a clean bill of health after a 10-month battle with two forms of cancer.
The 77-year-old McNair spoke about his ordeal at a news conference Thursday attended by his doctors and family members.
McNair says he's dealt with skin cancer for about 20 years and was diagnosed about six years ago with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a blood disease that weakens the immune system.
He had surgery last fall to remove an abnormal growth behind his left ear. Doctors told him that they couldn't remove all the cancerous cells and that McNair had an aggressive form of the disease. He underwent six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy and CT scans in April and on Monday showed that the cancer cells were virtually gone.
