  1. Many seem to tire of this story but honestly I never do. The man fought for his life and beat a disease that kills so many people every year. Something to celebrate for sure.

  2. Glad to see this. Fitting that Eddie-O gets the One More Shift Treatment anyway, and fitting that it is on the night chosen. Salute!

  3. I can’t begin to tell you what an inspiration Eddie has been to me
    I’m fighting cancer myself and positive news is so important. Thanks Eddie keep up th good fight!!

  4. Same with me Dave-it’s expected one in two people in North America will develop some form of the disease in their lifetime.

  5. A class-act like Eddie-O makes an older guy like me proud to be a life-long Blackhawks fan. The very best to Dave to beat this thing.
