Saskatchewan Roughriders legend Donald Narcisse posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday morning that he has been diagnosed with Stage 1 Prostate Cancer.

 

From Mr. Narcisse's Facebook page: "#ridernation On Friday I was Diagnosed with Stage 1 Prostate Cancer. They caught it real early which is a good thing. On Sunday my brothers ,sisters and GrandKids showed up to my house to lift me up. My Sister Pamela Forsander had Pancreatic Cancer 17yrs ago and she gave me one of the Best Motivational Ever. She said I have inspired so many people so make sure I don’t keep this a SECRET. And to use my platform to bring Awareness to Cancer. So for the next few months I will be fighting this DEMON. Watch how God Walk me through this Journey. I would love for you to send me a message. I start Radiation in the next few weeks. I will definitely keep you all Posted. I LOVE Y’all #Iamsoblessed Donald Ray #80"

 

We recently had the chance to talk to Mr. Narcisse on the Piffles Podcast so this one hurts just a little deeper. But we all know that Don is a fighter and he WILL beat this!

 

Mr. Narcisse, we at Piffles Podcast and the rest of Ridernation send our best wishes, thoughts and prayers to you and your family and friends. We KNOW you will overcome this! We do our best to keep our language very family friendly, but I think we can all agree on this... F*** Cancer!
