">@SMHCS say that I have zero cancer currently. I was inspired daily by the famous words of my late buddy Jimmy V “Don’t Give up DON’T EVER GIVE UP!" Vitale tweeted.

Vitale was diagnosed with lymphoma last fall but has won his fight with the disease.

He didn't get to call any games this season due to his battle with the disease, but that may change for the 2022-23 season.

As Vitale always says, this is truly awesome, baby.
