Shark Tank’s Daymond John Opens Up About His Cancer Diagnosis

Daymond John, Shark Tank star and one of the founding members of hip hop clothing brand FUBU, has revealed that unbeknownst to the public, he was battling cancer.


John recently had a mass removed from his thyroid that turned out to be stage two cancer. “You know, I didn’t skip a beat,” He told fellow cancer survivor, Robin Roberts. “I went and I got some early detections, and I understood that I had a challenge and if I would attack it now, then I wouldn’t let it attack me.”


Two days after his surgery, John says that he was back to “partying and dancing” as usual.


“I am absolutely great,”  he said. “I have to monitor [it] the rest of my life. You know, I have another half of my thyroid still in, and in the event that it comes back, I’ll be able to fight it. Thyroid is a very slow-growing cancer.”


John says that his family was his motivation for being proactive in his health.


“I want to be there to walk them down the aisle,” he told Good Morning America. “…”And this is how it happens, by going out and people getting mammograms, colonoscopies…and all the things to find out what’s going on. Because you can prevent this, and you can stay around in your family’s life.”


It’s awesome that Daymond John was able to stay ahead of this. It’s very important that we get screened regularly.

  1. Celebrities, just like the general public, commonly promote the mainstream agenda, promoting narratives and slogans they’ve heard a million times (“mammograms save lives”, get your colonoscopy, etc) without EVER actually scrutinizing these claims.

    In contrast to the medical hype and disinformation of the corrupt medical establishment, the real evidence shows a lack of mortality benefit from cancer screenings (see “Does screening for disease save lives in asymptomatic adults? Systematic review of meta-analyses and randomized trials” (Int J Epidemiol. 2015 Feb;44(1):264-77. doi: 10.1093/ije/dyu140) and “Why cancer screening has never been shown to “save lives”–and what we can do about it” (BMJ. 2016 Jan 6;352:h6080. doi: 10.1136/bmj.h6080).

    Let’s take mammography as a specific example:

    Contrary to the official narrative (which is based on medical business-fabricated pro-mammogram “scientific” data), there is marginal, if any, reliable evidence that mammography, both conventional and digital (3D), reduces mortality from breast cancer in a significant way in any age bracket but a lot of solid evidence shows the procedure does provide more serious harm than serious benefit (read the books: ‘Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy’ by Peter Gotzsche and ‘The Mammogram Myth’ by Rolf Hefti).

    These two extensive investigations reveal to anyone that…

    IF…….. women (and men) at large were to examine the mammogram data above and beyond the information of the mammogram business cartel (eg American Cancer Society, National Cancer Institute, Komen), they’d also find that it is almost exclusively the big profiteers of the test, ie. the “experts,” (eg radiologists, oncologists, medical trade associations, breast cancer “charities” etc) who promote the mass use of the test and that most pro-mammogram “research” is conducted by people with massive vested interests tied to the mammogram industry.

    Most women are fooled by the misleading medical mantra that early detection by mammography saves lives simply because the public has been fed (“educated” or rather brainwashed) with a very one-sided biased pro-mammogram set of information circulated by the big business of mainstream medicine. The above mentioned two independent investigative works show that early detection does not mean that there is less breast cancer mortality.

    Because of this one-sided promotion and marketing of the test by the medical business, women have been obstructed from making an “informed choice” about its benefits and risks which have been inaccurately depicted by the medical industry, favoring their business interests.

    Operating and reasoning based on this false body of information is the reason why very few women understand, for example, that a lot of breast cancer survivors are victims of harm instead of receivers of benefit. Therefore, almost all breast cancer “survivors” and the general public blindly repeat the official medical hype and nonsense.

    Misguided celebrities are among the favorite ignorant advocators for the highly lucrative products of the corrupt cancer industry.
