Fresh from cancer battle, Michael Farber on the road to recovery

In the summer of grief, some welcome good news for hockey fans everywhere, and particularly Habs fans, as today’s Gazette reports that Michael Farber’s cancer is in remission. Farber, a longtime Montreal of Gazette, Sports Illustrated, and The Reports fame, has been fighting the disease since the spring.

Michael Farber represents, to me, the best of sports journalism. If he isn’t the best hockey writer out there, I don’t know who is…maybe Red Fisher? Also one of the greats, Fisher is the author of the great news, linked below from the Montreal Gazette’s website:

Farber Gets Good News in Battle with Cancer

A fitting place to note once again my quest to raise $2,000 for cancer research in October when I do Run for the Cure. I’ve already had a couple of donations from Korner readers, along with wonderful emails of support. Any and all contributions are welcome. It’s a great cause, and one close to my heart as my mother recently battled breast cancer and beat it.

Thank you to all for the comments and emails. Keep ‘em coming!

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
