Dave Strader Statement On His Fight With A Rare And Aggressive Form Of Cancer

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars have released the following statement on behalf of Play-By-Play Announcer Dave Strader regarding his cancer diagnosis:

"With the start of the NHL season almost upon us, I wanted to share an update on my condition with everyone who has been kind enough to reach out over the past several months. In early June 2016, a tumor was found in my bile duct. I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a fairly rare and aggressive form of cancer.

"There is no cure for my cancer. However, at this point in time, it is treatable. With advancements in all areas of cancer treatments evolving so quickly, I'm fighting every day and doing everything the doctors tell me. The Stars' organization, the fans and the entire NHL family have been so supportive. It has meant so much to me, my wife Colleen and our entire family to know that we are not in this fight alone. I will work as many games as my condition and my treatments allow. Thank you again for all your love and support."

Fans wishing to send their notes of support to Strader can do so by emailing WellWishesForStrader@dallasstars.com.
