Ron Rivera was declared cancer-free after yesterday’s checkup.
WFT coach Rivera, who announced on Aug. 20 that he had squamous cell cancer, tweeted thanks for the support he received during his treatment and recovery.
“Thank you everyone for your prayers, letters, texts & notes of encouragement & support. It truly made a difference in my treatment & recovery!#RiveraStrong @WashingtonNFL,” he wrote.

That social media post came after both his wife, Stephanie, and daughter, Courtney, took to social media earlier Thursday to announce that Rivera had defeated cancer.
