ABC chief legal affairs anchor, Dan Abrams, was very secretive about his cancer battle, but when he went public about his fatal illness, and inspired many people. After his battle with the disease, he seems to be cherishing his life much more. 

Health Update: Overcame Illness After Inspirational Cancer Battle

Dan had testicular cancer back in 2004. For most of the time, he was pretty confidential about his cancer battle. But he opened up about the issue to be of some help to other young men who might face the same issue in their lives.

Speaking about it through a memoir he wrote back in 2004, Dan said-

Today I spoke publicly, for the first time about what had been a very private matter... my bout with testicular cancer. Until now, it is a topic I had only discussed with a handful of friends and family. But for Sean Kimerling, I think I would have kept it that way.

He shared the story of Seam Kimerling, who died on September 9, 2003, and mentioned that he wanted other people to hear the story and be aware of the possibility of them facing the same issue.

I am lucky. Not only did I survive, but now, it seems, I am cancer free and feeling as good as ever. Had Sean detected the disease earlier, he and I might have discussed our experiences in private. I hope that my willingness to go public can help other young men who, like Sean and me, never thought it could or would strike us.    

Dan first noticed the issue back in 2003 when he was in Mexico. Later he visited George Lombardi, an internist, who told him that it was a certainty that he might have faced testicular cancer, 60 to 70 percent. He got diagnosed on time as delays in his diagnosis might have caused some severe damage to his health. However, many fans and media noticed some changes in his body structure upon his recovery, which sparked several weight loss rumors about him. However, Abrams has not addressed his weight loss rumors yet. 

More About Dan's Family Life! 

Dan enjoys blissful family life with his girlfriend, Gucci America's PR director Florinka Pesenti, and their son, Everett. The two met via common friends during a party back in 2009 and kickstarted their relationship soon after that.

Even though Dan and Florinka have not tied the knot yet, the pair expanded their family by welcoming their son Everett back in 2012.

Dan doesn't share pictures with his girlfriend, but he usually posts pictures with his son on his social media.

A New Found Passion

At the peak of his television career, Dan found a new passion in life. The presenter, who is enormously fond of writing, also tried his hands as an author and has been fairly successful over that.

Besides his memoir in 2004, he has published several articles for some of the most popular newspapers and online magazines, including The New York Times and The Daily Beast.

Later in 2010, Dan published his book titled Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers and Just About Everything Else, which went on to become a verified Washington Post bestseller.

He has since then had success in another one of his books titled  Lincoln’s Last Trial: The Murder Case That Propelled Him to the Presidency, published in June 2018. The book also spent five weeks in the top ten of the New York Times Best Sellers List.

Similarly, his next book titled Theodore Roosevelt for the Defense: The Courtroom Battle to Save His Legacy, published on May 2019, became New York Times bestseller, and his recent book John Adams Under Fire: The Founding Father's Fight for Justice in the Boston Massacre Murder Trial, published on March 3, 2020, became a New York Times top 10 bestsellers
