    What a gut punch. You go out and find a young, up and coming coach to grow with your organization as you rebuild and who would have ever envisioned something like this. Hopefully it is manageable and highly treatable as many of the lukemia's are these days. I have a friend you battled one 4-5 years ago and he came through it fine although he was told it often re-emerges within a decade and can become increasingly difficult to stay ahead of if that continues to happen. Many cancers are now being treated as chronic illness that as long as you can tolerate the chemos that seem to combat them they just keep beating back over time. The problem is the treatment is often as draining as the disease and cumulative fatigue and side effects also take a toll.

    Hopefully they find a treatment for him that works well from the outset.

    A report I read stated that it's a beatable form, so best of luck to Mr. Pagano.

    Also, best wishes for his family. May they find the strength they need in what will be a difficult time for them.

    You can thank the SAD (standard american diet) for his leukemia.

    He's young and treatments have come a long way. I hope he's soon in remission and on his way to a full recovery and a successful head coaching career.

    Yes, a gut punch to anyone who's gets a diagnosis of this magnitude - he's tough and a fighter, he can beat it. Fortunately, it's very treatable, and TV news just reported he's already in the hospital receiving chemo - all the best to you Chuck.

    I will continue to pray for him as he goes through this tough battle.


    No, I won't. I'll thank all of the progress that will continue being made in medical advancement to help him through this challenge, and walk hand in hand alongside all of those affected by this unpredictable medical tornado.
