Jason Blake Feeling Great

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

“I’m doing great,” said Blake. “I was actually at the doctor last week. Everything is definitely managed. I’ve put it behind me. It’s good to be back and I’m ready to play. My mind is totally clear.

“It’s the best I’ve felt in 10 years. I worked hard this summer. I did a couple of different things to get ready for this year and hopefully it will pay off.”

That Blake seems to be winning his battle with chronic myelogenous leukemia is perhaps the best news of all. He was assured from the beginning it was a beatable form of cancer. Still, the news came as a blow.

“I didn’t think it would take that big of a toll on me. It did,” said Blake. “It’s unfortunate that had to happen.”
