Hey guys and gals,
Just got the sad news that one of my heroes and coaches Joe Lewis is fighting the fight of his life against brain cancer.
There is some false/overblown information floating around the web, so I thought I would try to clear some of it up here.
Joe has had a tumor on his brain removed which he was told was cancerous. He was then told that if he refused follow-up chemo and radiation treatments that he would have 6 to 8 weeks to live. However, he is NOT refusing these treatments (on the contrary he is trying to get all the treatments he can) and therefore the doctors told him that he would have at least 13-15 months (and that's IF he doesn't recovery fully).
The statistics for his age bracket aren't great for a full recovery, but Joe is probably physically closer to a 35-45 year old in terms of vitality, stamina, and general health, so we're praying that a full recovery is exactly what happens.
Please keep him in your thoughts/prayers and wish him a fully healthy recovery.
