“Cancer just got its ass kicked”


Dick Vitale’s Signature Voice Returns: ‘Cancer Just Got His Ass Kicked’

Legendary broadcaster Dick Vitale is recovering from a seven-month battle with cancer, cleared to use his voice but playing March Madness at home.

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. — Dick Vitale watches TV wide-eyed, leaning his lower back on the couch to ease the pain from a shot of Neupogen meant to offset pain from his penultimate round of chemotherapy.

His living room has windows that overlook a golf course in the backyard and opens to an office that could pass for a sports museum of a Hall of Fame broadcaster career. The hallways are decorated with photos of her five grandchildren and family vacations. Vitale’s wife of 50 years, Lorraine, rushes around the house to help clear the desert after dinner.
