Brunson Defeats Cancer For The Sixt Time!

Tags: cancer, doyle brunson.
Posted on 19 April 2016 by "T".

82-year-old poker legend Doyle Brunson has won yet another battle against cancer. Brunson, who has 10 World Series of Poker titles under his belt, tweeted the following on Monday:

Brunson's battle against cancer started over 50 years ago
Brunson met his future wife, Louise, in 1960 and married her in August 1962. Louise became pregnant, but later that year, a tumor was discovered in Doyle's neck. When it was operated on, the surgeons found that the cancer had spread and declared it incurable. They felt that an operation would prolong his life long enough for him to see the birth of the baby, so they went ahead with it. After the operation, no trace of the cancer could be found. The doctors said that his recovery must have been a miracle, and Brunson has attributed his cure to the prayers of friends of his wife and their correspondence with Kathryn Kuhlman, a self-proclaimed Christian faith healer.

Cool Smile The legendary Doyle Brunson has more years to come Smile I really thought we wouldn't see him again at a poker table.

But he has always said it himself: He will play untill he no longer can. That's why we haven't seen him in the last 2 years or so, he was too sick. Didn't know it was his 6th cancer though. Now he will be back!

Go Texas dolly!!!

He has probably more will and luck than any of us here alone or combined tbh. Altough skin cancer is highly treatable if they recognize them on time.

This is no surprise!!If he can keep winning at the poker tables for fifty years then he wasn't going to give up when fighting cancer!
Have to say I am impressed with the medical care he received in the US I doubt he would have managed that feat if he had cancer 6 times in the UK.

The guy was an all american track star, maybe the greatest poker player ever to live. Could've played in the NBA for the Lakers if a knee injury hadn't befelled him.

What's Cancer got that this guy can't handle? Nothing he's more than Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris hasn't beaten cancer 6 times, Doyle MF'ing Doyle that's who's beaten it!

Good luck on your recovery Doyle and can't wait to see you back on the felt soon!
