Sportswriter Mike Celizic, who has written a number of stories about skating, wrote a very touching column today about his losing fight with cancer. Very touching, and some of his earlier columns about the diagnosis are definitely worth reading.
The lymphoma we’d thought we’d beaten into remission back in May came roaring back last month. We threw some really nasty chemo at it. The cancer ate it up and came back for more.
And so I’m going to die, and not in four or five months. I’ve got probably a couple of halfway decent weeks left. Then the lymphoma will take over my bloodstream and kill me.
