It was announced today that Stan Mikita is battling stage 1 oral cancer.

According to Chicago Breaking Sports:

“Stan has been diagnosed with an early base of tongue cancer and the prognosis is excellent,” said Richard Borrowdale of Loyola Medical Center, who will be treating Mikita. “He will be treated with external beam radiation therapy.”

Stage 1 oral cancer has a 90% survival rate (which is why it’s so important to catch it early). Good luck, Mr. Mikita! We’re all rooting for you to beat this.
