Daymond John Reveals Thyroid Cancer Diagnosis

You never know what someone is going through behind closed doors.

During a visit to “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, Daymond John revealed his recent thyroid cancer diagnosis.

The “Shark Tank” star and successful entrepreneur had a mass removed from his thyroid that turned out to be stage 2 cancer.

Daymond told Robin Roberts:

You know, I didn’t skip a beat. I went to and I got some early detections, and I understood that I had a challenge and if I would attack it now, then I wouldn’t let it attack me.

I am absolutely great. I have to monitor [it] the rest of my life. You know, I have another half of my thyroid still in, and in the event that it comes back, I’ll be able to fight it. Thyroid is a very slow-growing cancer.

I’m good and I want to share this with people because that’s what success is. It’s staying in your family’s lives; it’s being around.

I want to be there to walk them [his 3 daughters] down the aisle and this is how it happens, by going out and people getting mammograms, colonoscopies … and all the things to find out what’s going on. Because you can prevent this, and you can stay around in your family’s life.

I’m so glad Daymond is well and kudos to him for sharing his story to empower others.
