Terry Bradshaw's wife Tammy opened up on NFL Hall of Famer's difficult battle with cancer

Terry Bradshaw will go down in history as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever grace the gridiron. His relentless desire to win saw him guide the Steelers to multiple Super Bowls.

But it was only after retiring that the legendary QB faced perhaps his biggest challenge. The Bradshaws recently opened up about the former Steelers star's cancer diagnoses, which included bladder cancer and Merkel's cell carcinoma (a form of skin cancer).

With an uphill battle ahead of him, the QB found support in the form of his wife Tammy, who has been with him every step of the way towards recovery. During an interview with 'Today', Tammy (a former radiation therapist) opened up on the emotions that took over the family upon the diagnosis:

"The doctor calls me to tell me what it is, and then I’m shook... I knew where this could go. I knew what the outcomes could be. And it did scare me the second time with that diagnosis. I never said this to him, but inside I carried a lot more worry and stress than what I let him know I think."
During today's show, Terry Bradshaw shared that he has been battling cancer over the past year. As of today, he is cancer free, and he discussed his fight and plan for the future:

Bradshaw is now thankfully cancer free. But he too acknowledged that his road to recovery would not have been possible if not for the constant support he received from his wife:

"I can’t imagine not holding her hand when we take off on a plane. Or when we land or when we snuggle up when we’re in bed together. Or when she’s sitting over there with our sick puppy... And I look at her and she doesn’t know I’m looking at her and I’m so thankful. Now I’m getting emotional."
