Jim Duggan battled cancer in 2021
In October 2021, Jim Duggan opened up for the first time about his prostate cancer. The following day, he underwent surgery. In almost a month, Jim overcame the life-threatening disease, and he announced the same on his official X handle.
However, this battle did not eliminate the slightest possibility of cancer returning. However, soon after, in May 2022, his cancer returned. His healing took a long time, and he had to visit the hospital for two months. Within these two months, Jim had to make five visits a week to the doctor. And after eight weeks, he finally rang the bell and marked the end of his cancer.
