Texans owner Bob McNair never announced he was fighting cancer. He gave an assumed name at his treatment center, and he was given a key to the back door so he could slip in unsuspectingly. He didn't want anyone to know.

But this week, he made his first public announcement about it, and it was a good one. McNair told reporters that he is, in fact, cancer free after battling two different forms of the disease for the past 10 months.

As the Houston Chronicle writes, "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."

The 77-year-old McNair told reporters he's never been through anything like that before. But now he's been given a clean bill of health.
