On the FOX pregame program, Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe shared some personal information.

Sharpe opened up to his audience about his personal struggle with prostate cancer in 2016 and  is now cancer-free.

Sharpe was contacted by Janssen a few months ago to help with the promotion of a campaign urging black men to be checked for prostate cancer.

They didn't know I had prostate cancer when they asked me to perform the task, according to Sharpe.

Sharpe said "Black men have a two-fold increased risk of developing prostate cancer, although early detection and screening can increase survival rates to 96%."

Sharpe  added "I'm a part of that 96%." 

Sharpe claimed he'd always wanted to talk about his experience but wasn't sure when the proper moment would come. The chance to promote Janssen offered him the opportunity to share his story.

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  

Sharpe said right now I don't feel only good even i feel great after sharing my story
