Liam Hendriks Has Been Diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Chicago Cubs

Tough news to pass on tonight, as Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks announced that he has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and will be starting treatment for the cancer tomorrow.

Although it’s understandable that some thoughts will go to the baseball side of things, it’s pretty hard to even consider that at the moment. You just want the player – a particularly good dude in Hendriks, too – to be healthy and OK. Thoughts are with Hendriks and his family, and we’ll all hope he will get through this as quickly and completely as possible.
