Terry Bradshaw's wife, Tammy, has opened up for the first time since her husband's battle with cancer became public.

The couple recently sat down for an exclusive interview with USA TODAY.

Bradshaw, 74, was diagnosed with two different types of cancer in less than a year.

In November 2021, the former NFL quarterback learned that he had bladder cancer.

In March 2022, he learned that he had a rare and aggressive form of skin cancer.

"The doctors call to tell me what it is, and then I'm shaken because I was a radiation therapist for 10 years," Tammy said. "I knew where this could go.

I knew what the consequences could be. And it scared me of that diagnosis the second time around. 

"I never said it to him, but I carry a lot more anxiety and stress inside than I imagine."

Terry and Tammy Bradshaw have been married since 2014. 

The Fox Sports analyst revealed how grateful he is to his wife.

Bradshaw had surgery last month to remove a cancerous Merkel cell tumor. He is now cancer free.

"I'm feeling great and with time, I'm going back to where I normally am," he said.

"So I appreciate your prayers and your concern."
