    ANDRUZZI BATTLING NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA

    FULL ARTICLE

    ANDRUZZI BATTLING NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA

    Former Browns, Patriots, and Packers offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to a release issued by his agent, Joe Linta.

    "While this condition is very serious, both Joe and his doctors feel he will quickly be on his way to a full recovery," the release said.

    Andruzzi will immediately begin a course of chemotherapy at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

    "He is being treated by some of the best specialists in the country for his affliction," the release said. "Joe is confident that he could not be in better hands. He would like to thank all of his fans and friends for the tremendous outpouring of support and prayers."

    The label "non-Hodgkin's lymphoma" refers to a broad group of cancers of the immune system. Treatment and prognosis depends on the specific form of the disease.

    Former Pittsburgh Penguins star Mario Lemieux was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the early 1990s. He made a full and complete recovery. (UPDATE: We were wrong; Lemieux has Hodgkin's disease, which is a more treatable cancer of the immune system.)
