from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,
I have cancer. It’s a very serious kind of cancer, and one that has put me in what is easily the toughest fight of my life….
It has always been important to me that you people, the people who give a writer the ultimate compliment of reading his work, approach that task unencumbered by needless distractions, distractions that include my health. No writer ever wants to be a part of the story let alone the story. That’s especially true in the world of column writing. An opinion is put forth on a subject or a person. It should stand alone rather than be mired in matters that don’t add to the issue and may very well subtract from it.
My health is an issue to me, but it shouldn’t be one to you. I appreciate all the comments wishing me well, but the issue should never be about me, how I feel, or how the battle is going, it should be about you, you getting a chance to read a piece on a topic we both love (the greatest game in the world) and being able to respond to it unencumbered by personal considerations.
