Ed Snider Dealing With Cancer

via Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Ed Snider, who brought hockey to Philadelphia in 1967 as founder of the Flyers, is battling an unspecified cancer and completed chemotherapy this week, according to several sources.

"He's going to work every day and it's treatable," a source in the organization said.

The condition is "non-life-threatening" and Snider is "doing well," said Ike Richman, a spokesman for Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers' parent company. "He is happy and healthy."

Snider's involvement with the team and the company was not affected by his condition or treatment, Richman said. He added that the team would not comment further.
