'Extra's' Jerry Penacoli Shares Cancer Survival Story

"Extra" news correspondent Jerry Penacoli was diagnosed last fall with stage three melanoma -- and he documented the fight for his life with an intimate video diary.

A strange mole that went unchecked for some time ended up turning into a life threatening skin cancer for Jerry. "Two surgeries later I ended up with one nasty infection, stuck in the hospital with a 104-degree fever, on intravenous antibiotics," said Penacoli.

Jerry returned to "Extra" on Monday with exciting news -- he won his battle with cancer and is now cancer-free.
