Jerry Remy, the colour analyst for the Boston Red Sox, has been diagnosed and is set to undergo treatment for a relapse of lung cancer, according to NESN (via Chad Finn of the Boston Globe).
Remy also announced the news on Twitter.
Remy, 64, has been broadcasting Red Sox games since 1988, and NESN announced that Remy plans to be in the broadcast booth again this season.
He was first diagnosed in 2008 and had a cancerous area removed from his lung. He had a relapse in 2013 and had surgery to remove a cancerous area from a different part of his lung but was able to continue broadcasting and didn’t miss any time while recovering from surgery.
