D.L. Hughley Takes Cancer Very Seriously
One of the original Kings of Comedy and actor DL Hughley is known for his wise-cracking jokes, quit-witted humor and funny takes on political issues. Always one to find humor in something, DL gets serious about colon cancer. He’s begun to use his voice to help raise awareness of preventive screening for colorectal cancer among African Americans. DL became involved in this health awareness campaign after cancer struck close to home in his own family.

Listen to what D.L. has to say about tackling the disease:
“I may be a comedian and actor but I take my health very seriously. Cancer runs in my immediate family so I’m doing all that I can to stop the cycle for myself, my three children, and my community. As a husband and father of three, I want to be here so I can walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding and grow old enough to spend time with my grandchildren.”
“That’s why I try to live a healthy and active lifestyle. I exercise five times a week, run 15 to 20 miles a week, lift weights, and maintain a balanced diet. My wife LaDonna and I practice healthy living and have tried to pass that legacy onto to our children.”
