Schilling has not disclosed what type of cancer he is battling.
His daughter, Gabby, also took to Twitter, writing: "beyond blessed to be able to say that my dad finished his LAST chemo today! just 3 more days of radiation" along with a picture of her father.
Schilling, 47, pitched in the majors for 20 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros, Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox. The six-time All-Star finished with a career record of 216-146 and a 3.46 ERA. His 3,116 strikeouts rank 15th all time.
In a statement about his cancer that was released by ESPN in February, Schilling said he and his family were ready to fight.
"I've always believed life is about embracing the gifts and rising up to meet the challenges," he said.
His wife, Shonda Schilling, also battled cancer after being diagnosed with stage 2 malignant melanoma in 2001.
