Craig Sager to undergo another procedure in his battle with cancer

TNT reporter Craig Sager is scheduled to have his third bone marrow/stem cell transplant Wednesday in his ongoing battle with leukemia.

Sager's son announced the news on Twitter on Tuesday, adding that an "anonymous donor" is to thank.

Craig Sager told HBO in March that it is rare for someone to have three stem cell transplants.

"I've already had two stem cell transplants," Sager said at the time. "Very rarely does somebody have a third. So I have to maintain my strength, so I can go through this.

"I haven't won the battle. It's not over yet. But I haven't lost it, either. There have been some victories and some setbacks, but I still have to fight it."

Sager released a statement in March regarding his diagnosis and prognosis but vowed to "win this battle."

"I have acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive type of cancer," Sager said in that statement. "The typical prognosis is 3-6 months to live, but I would like to stress that is for a patient who is not receiving treatment. Fortunately, I am receiving the best treatment in the world and I remain fully confident I will win this battle."
