Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is recovering from surgery, less than a week after he disclosed that he had cancer.
The type of cancer Schilling had the procedure done for has not been announced.
Schilling tweeted out to his thousands of followers last Friday, “Overwhelmed at the well wishes and prayers. Bless all of you. No pity or sympathy needed, I’ve been beyond blessed. I’m ready for this … One more thing, the world goes on after you leave, change it while you’re here.”
