Houston Texans owner Bob McNair is healthy after a 10-month battle with cancer he announced on Thursday at a press conference with media members of the Houston media.

In an article by John McClain of the Houston Chronicle it said of McNair’s cancer battle:

"“McNair’s remarkable recovery has included ground-breaking experimental treatment for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), painful surgery on the left side of his head and neck and 30 sessions of radiation, causing second-degree burns that required a plastic surgeon to perform skin grafts.”"

This is great news for the 77-year old Texans owner, as the Texans will open their regular season against the Washington Redskins on Sept. 7.

The article also quotes McNair saying:

"“I didn’t think I was going to die. I knew some did. I knew there were some rumors. That’s one of the reasons I’m talking about it.”"

McNair has owned the Texans since they entered the NFL.

Let’s all hope McNair stays healthy and can live a great quality life.

Stay well, Mr. McNair.

The Texans open their preseason scheduke at Arizona against the Cardinals on Saturday night.
