Jerry Remy Says He Suffered Lung Cancer Relapse During Offseason

Jerry Remy

During a pre-taped segment as part of NESN’s pregame show, NESN commentator Jerry Remy announced he suffered a relapse of lung cancer during the offseason. The relapse was diagnosed in January, leading to radiation treatment in March, according to WEEI.

Remy, though, said he is doing fine and is not worried.

“I am not concerned about it. I am upbeat and positive,” Remy said.

Remy’s Twitter account clarified his pre-game statement, saying:

“Hi, it’s John. To clarify what Jerry said tonight. A spot that was seen on Jerry’s lung in ’08 was recently removed. He’s fine thank God!”

Remy was out for much of the 2009 season while he battled lung cancer and depression. He recently signed a long-term deal with NESN and doesn’t plan on missing any time this season.
