So I guess that usually Hodgkin's is 90% curable, but the fact that they haven't seen this before sounds bad. That is just the hospital in Ithaca though, perhaps the one when he gets home to Pittsburgh will have seen it before.

    He is driving home to Pittsburgh tonight and he starts chemo next week.

    I also forgot to mention that he said that the thing in his lung was just a spot and not cancerous (he probably fell really hard sometime and it left a mark). However, the tumor in his kidney is the size of a fist and the one in his liver is the size of a nickel.
    Thanks, Danielle. I'll drop him a note.

    That's true, initially diagnosed back in 1982 - he is now a 25 years survivor.

    Mario Lemiuex was diagnosed back in 1997 and made a return to hockey in 2000.

    This one is highly treatable.

    Danielle, did you see the thing from Ezra about making sure this is kosher with the NCAA and Cornell's compliance people? (The money giving, not the supportiveness.) I wouldn't put it past the NCAA to be ridiculous in a case like this.

    It may not matter since Cornell is not a scholarship school. However, checking w/ the NCAA before accepting donations would be a smart thing for the Frey family to do.

    Yes, I did and I brought that up to Adam. (See the reply on the other thread).

    Thanks!

    Awesome. I just want to make sure that all this good work that you're doing is not screwed up by the NCAA!

    I know I'm probably sounding like a homer, but Pittsburgh has some world-class cancer treatment centers.

    I'm confident Adam will receive excellent care.

    Good to hear.

    Blue, what exactly is your new avatar? It looks like Zadick with a red beard?
