Chicago Blackhawks Legend, Stan Mikita, was diagnosed with Stage One Oral Cancer on Tuesday. The Blackhawks made the announcement this afternoon, with a positive mood as the prognosis was quoted as "Excellent." Mikita's cancer deals with his tongue, and radiation treatment will be used to eliminate the possibility of it worsening. Mikita's legacy in Chicago is huge, and the news of this will not go unnoticed. While I was walking today, people were already discussing it, expressing their worries and best memories of "Stosh." The Blackhawks faithful are hopeful to seeing him in the box at the UC this fall.
Even though the prognosis is excellent, nothing is completely safe. Due to this, we still wish the best to Stan, and the Mikita family as this can be a challenging time. There are not many legends like Stan, and we wish him all the best during this period in time.
