Thumbs down Steve Deumig has inoperable brain cancer

He put this on his Facebook page 6 hours ago. My brother passed away from this almost a year ago to the day and he suffered terribly. Though we've all had our disagreements and arguments with the Big Dog, I think we can all agree now that he needs as many prayers from everyone that he can get at this unfortunate time in his life. Cancer DOES suck, I've lost too many in my family :thumbsdown:

I am writing this message to all of you this morning to let all of you know where I've been since returning from super bowl coverage on Saturday evening.
I can assure you I have not been on extra vacation. While watching the Lightning game, I collapsed
And lost all functionality on the right side of my body. 3 days later
I awoke in the neuro ICU unit of north side hospital. After several
CT scans and a hole dug into the top of my head for a biopsy it was discovered that I had several
Inoperable tumors on my brain. ( this may have been the reason I was having trouble getting through live read commercials in the past on some days in the past and being severely criticized for it. By some of you in the past. I hope you're happy now for the unreasonable criticism)
At any rate a biopsy was done yesterday and the results were not
Good. I have BRAIN CANCER . The degree of the Infection and treatment is currently being determined. Full functionality has returned on my right side for now. How long it stays that way will remain a mystery until we can figure out other things. I have a great team of doctors at north side
And nurses all working to get me back to work as soon as possible. Hopefully it will be very soon
So there u have the rest of the story.
Hang in there with me and we will beat this disease together Cancer SUCKS.

BIGDOG

That's very sad.

I knew someone else online that passed away from this a few years ago and was able to be there for them at times, but I still can't imagine. Hopefully he can keep positive like my friend did and fight this. I know I haven't always appreciated what he's had to say but he's still a fellow Lightning fan so I wish him all the best.

Wow, that's terrible. I hope this turns out better than it sounds right now.

It goes without saying, but life can change in an instant. Spend time with the folks you care about & let them know you appreciate them!

He's returning to the airwaves on Monday afternoon, not seeing other details about how he's doing, however.

The Big C finally got the Big Dog

https://953wdae.iheart.com/content/2...-steve-duemig/

Love him or hate him, he was the face of Tampa Bay radio sports for decades. Though you kinda knew this would happen, it still stings when you heard about it. RIP Steve and prayers to his family...

I always enjoyed listening to him when he did the post game lightning show.

I remember after a brutal loss Steve cursing at some Flyer fan and threatening to beat his ass. The number of “You want to fight me asshole? Come on you fucker” coming out of his mouth may remain a Tampa record for many years.

I got tired of his bigotry, but he was a Tampa Bay Lightning fan when few existed.

That is just sad, I had my disagreements with him, especially his foray into politics when you could tell he was supporting Trump, but he was a great supporter of sports in our community and did his best for our community, especially his annual golf tournament. My Dad died of brain cancer in 2006, it is not something you ever want to see because it steals your memories and destroys your brain. It is not something I would wish on anyone. May your memory be eternal Big Dog, enjoy heaven.
