Here is the caption Sandberg posted with the photo:

“After yesterday’s PET scan and MRI tests, great news today with NO detection of Cancer! This is after finishing Chemo treatments, and headed to radiation for several weeks since the original diagnosis was incurable cancer, but to keep at very minimum has been the goal since treatments started. We have made it to that goal and will continue treatments as we are “ Crushing it” to Win the battle! Symptoms remain on daily basis but still having semi normal good days! 😃 Feeling very blessed and grateful for the results and support from Everyone! Thanks for the thoughts and prayers, 🦏 👊🏻crushingit #godisgood”

In January, Sandberg announced that he had been diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer and had begun treatment.

He has been at Wrigley Field several times this season, including Opening Day, where he spoke to Marquee Sports Network contributor Chris Emma about the support from fans and how he has fared in his journey.

The timing on Sandberg’s health update is also great news. Next month, the Cubs will unveil a Sandberg statue outside Wrigley Field on June 23, the 40th anniversary of “The Sandberg Game.”
