Last February, journalist Tom Brokaw revealed he was undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in August 2013.

But now, Tom, 74, has happily announced his cancer — which affected blood cells in the bone marrow — is now in remission.

"A year ago my future was more uncertain than I cared to acknowledge but now I face the New Year with very encouraging news," he wrote in a statement released by NBC. "The cancer is in remission and I will shortly go on a drug maintenance regimen to keep it there."
