Daniel Norris' surgery to treat thyroid cancer was a success

New, comments

Ten days ago Detroit Tigers starter Daniel Norris announced on his Instagram that he had operable thyroid cancer and would be undergoing surgery to have it removed. On Thursday, Norris took to his account again to report happy news that the operation was a success, as well as a picture of his scar.

"I just want to thank everyone for the thoughts & prayers," Norris said on his Instagram account. "Surgery was successful & I am Cancer Free. #justkeeplivin"

Norris also sporting a mean beard that would make Alex Avila jealous.

I just want to thank everyone for the thoughts & prayers. Surgery was successful & I am Cancer Free. #justkeeplivin
