Boston Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy has once again been diagnosed with cancer.
“Jerry Remy has been diagnosed once again with cancer. At this time, Jerry’s focus is on his medical treatment,” NESN confirmed in a statement. “The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time.”
This is the 65-year-old Remy’s sixth time battling cancer in the last 10 years. Remy most recently battled lung cancer in June 2017, and announced in January this year that he had complete treatments at Mass General Hospital.
Remy’s colleagues at NESN quickly took to Twitter to send their well wishes Remy’s way.
I thoroughly enjoy when we do games together as a 3-man booth. Get well, soon @Jerry_Remy!— Dennis Eckersley (@Eck43) August 7, 2018
