UNDATED (KTIV)- Yankton, South Dakota-native, and former "NBC Nightly News" anchor, Tom Brokaw has revealed that he has cancer.

Back in August, doctors at the Mayo Clinic diagnosed Brokaw with multiple myeloma. That's a cancer affecting blood cells in the bone marrow.

His doctors are optimistic about the outcome of the treatment he is receiving, and Brokaw said he remains "the luckiest guy I know."

Brokaw released this statement, "with the exceptional support of my family, medical team and friends, I am very optimistic about the future and look forward to continuing my life, my work and adventures still to come."
