'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Four-Time World Series Champ Darryl Strawberry
Date:7/29/2009

WASHINGTON, July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four-Time World Series champion and legendary Major League Baseball slugger Darryl Strawberry will be featured on this month's episode of Sharing Miracles - a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients. Sharing Miracles airs every Sunday morning on more than 300 television stations nationwide.

Darryl Strawberry burst onto the baseball scene at a young age, joining the New York Mets at only 21 years old and earning National League Rookie-of-the-Year honors. During his storied career, he was named to the All-Star team eight years in a row; led the New York Yankees and Mets to four World Series Championships; won the Silver Slugger Award twice; and was only the tenth player in MLB history to join the 30/30 club, hitting 39 home runs and stealing 36 bases in 1987 while with the Mets.

However, his future in baseball looked uncertain in 1998, when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. In this month's episode of Sharing Miracles, Strawberry tells how he ignored his symptoms prior to receiving his diagnosis: "Being an athlete, I didn't say anything about it to anyone. Instead, I drank Maalox every day when I arrived at the ballpark."

Eventually, he decided to see a doctor. When he received his diagnosis, he says, he was devastated. "My mother had passed away in 1996 from terminal breast cancer at such a young age - 55 - that I figured I was going to be dying at a young age, too."

Fortunately, his cancer was treatable, and he was able to return to baseball. However, only two years later, the cancer returned - and this time, the treatment would be much more invasive, requiring chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumor as well as a kidney.

The therapy was successful, and Strawberry now lives life cancer-fr
