Smith Hart has announced on his Facebook page that he has been diagnosed with bone and prostate cancer.

He posted the following on facebook:

“This week my doctors confirmed that I have both prostate cancer and bone cancer. I have not yet received a full prognosis on what is yet to come nor my options for treatment. It is quite sad that despite the millions that have died from this tragic disease and the billions that have been raised for research that this ailment has yet to be eradicated from history. Given the diagnosis I will be spending my upcoming time focused on finishing and hopefully releasing my autobiography, which I anticipate to be a full and comprehensive look at my family, Stampede wrestling and some of the most notable moments in wrestling history as I was able to ride shotgun and have first-hand witness account to 66 years of the Hart families triumphs and tragedies. Thanks for the prayers, but hold on because I am not done fighting yet. I will update accordingly.”

He is the eldest of the Hart family children.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
