MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew says he will no longer fight esophageal cancer and is settling in for the final days of his life.

The Minnesota Twins released a statement on Friday from Killebrew, saying he has “exhausted all options” for treatment and the cancer is incurable.

Killebrew says he’ll enter hospice care, that he’s comforted by the presence of family and friends and that he looks forward to spending his final days “in comfort and peace” with his wife, Nita.
