Monmouth announcer Frank Mirahmadi has officially been pronounced cancer-free by Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, reports drf.com. Over the last 12 months, Mirahmadi has undergone two surgeries for colon cancer.

“I feel good, and obviously relieved,” he said. “The six months of chemo was taxing, but thankfully I was able to handle the side effects and fatigue without missing any work. I have had many people praying for me, and am a big believer in the power of prayer. I hope they will continue because cancer is a vicious disease.”

Scheduled to undergo blood tests in March and another scan in one year, Mirahmadi is preparing to return to Golden Gate Fields on Oct. 19.

    Frank Mirahmadi is a gentleman and all around good guy. Outside of racing he’s had a few ups and downs, but who among us has not? Looking forward to him retuning to the mike at GGF next month.

    Frank is one of the best things to happen at monmouth park in a long time. It was hard to replace Larry however Frank is doing a great job. He is into his calls and his accuracy is fantastic.

    Great news regarding Frank. I sure hope he returns next summer for his moonlighting at the Spa.
