“After yesterday's PET scan and MRI tests, great news today with NO detection of Cancer!” Sandberg wrote on Instagram. “This is after finishing Chemo treatments, and headed to radiation for several weeks since the original diagnosis was incurable cancer, but to keep at very minimum has been the goal since treatment started. We have made it to that goal and we'll continue treatments as we are 'Crushing it' to Win the battle.”
Sandberg, 64, was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer in December and announced in January that he had begun undergoing treatment.
The 10-time All-Star threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Cubs’ home opener at Wrigley Field on April 1, and the team plans to unveil a statue of him later this season.
The 1984 National League MVP, Sandberg played 15 seasons on Chicago’s North Side, winning nine Gold Gloves and seven Silver Sluggers.
"Symptoms remain on daily basis but still having semi normal good days!” he wrote. “Feeling very blessed and grateful for the results and support from everyone!”
