Date:7/29/2009

ee. However, his road to survival was a long, difficult one. "There were times during therapy - both the first time and during the reoccurrence - when I wanted to give up. However, like in baseball, I had to rise to the occasion. This, of course, was a much more difficult test, but I was determined to beat cancer."

Now he spreads the word about his experience and encourages hope among his fellow cancer patients. "My message to people battling cancer is, 'Don't ever give up the fight. You're in a tremendous fight, and it's not going to be easy. There will be some long, painful days that you'll have to walk through. But keep your head up.'"

The episode also includes interviews with former Philadelphia Phillies all-star and ESPN commentator John Kruk and former New York Mets announcer Dave Cohen, who provide insight into Strawberry's baseball career.

The cancer that struck Strawberry, colon cancer, affects one in 18 Americans, according to the National Cancer Institute. This year alone, 148,000 Americans will be diagnosed with the disease and 50,000 will die.

That's why America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies are dedicated to the discovery and development of new treatments for cancer. In fact, 70 new medicines are currently being developed to fight colon cancer.

Speaking in the new episode about these potential new medicines being studied for colon cancer is Amgen scientist Dr. David Reese, who discusses current treatments involving surgery and chemotherapy, as well as "some of the new targeted biologic agents that are directly attacking the generic mutations in the cancer cell."

Upcoming episodes of Sharing Miracles will feature actor Danny Glover, who battled epilepsy, and former Philadelphia Phillies all-star John Kruk.
