America’s long-time newscaster, Tom Brokaw, has been in remission for multiple myeloma, a type of cancer that comes with excruciating pain from cancer cells clustering in bone marrow. Brokaw was diagnosed in 2013 and has since become a medical marijuana user and advocate for battling his pain.
Brokaw said, “I’m now on medical marijuana,” the New York Post reported. He said his quality of life is better now.
“I didn’t want my friends coming around and wringing their hands — I didn’t want to be the victim,” Brokaw stated. “I’ve been a very lucky guy. We’ve had a great life. And I want it to go on.”
