[ # ] Relative Race’s Dan Debenham gives an update on his cancer
March 20th, 2023 under BYU TV

Last season at the beginning of Relative Race, Dan Debenham announced that he was diagnosed with stage IV prostate cancer earlier in the year and had just finished going through chemotherapy.

Since then, we haven’t gotten an update from the host about how he was doing.

Yesterday, he released a video, and he is looking great. His hair has grown back. But instead of having brown hair, he is now grey. He looks so good that BYU TV won’t let him dye it. And I agree with them.

That is how he is doing on the outside, but what about his cancer? “I finished my chemotherapy. Yet I am starting two new FDA-approved; it’s still clinically chemotherapy, but I don’t get really sick. And I don’t lose my hair. And it is really helping,” he said. “So I am feeling a lot better. And while I still have a long ways to go, I also have my Relative Race family, and that includes all of you…So I am good!”

And he wanted to let us know that he is feeling the love and prayers we have been sending his way.

Hopefully, these new treatments will help him beat cancer, and he will be hosting Relative Race for many more years.

On that note, season 11 debuts on Sunday. And you don’t want to miss the new season of the best reality show on television. You never know which family members the teams are going to meet and which ones are going to make you cry the hardest. There are always tears but happy tears.
