    SEATTLE (AP) -- Microsoft Corp. co-founder and billionaire investor Paul Allen has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and is undergoing chemotherapy.

    In a memo sent to employees, Jody Allen, Paul Allen's sister and the CEO of his investment firm Vulcan Inc., said the 56-year-old received the diagnosis early this month. According to the memo, Paul Allen has diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, a relatively common form of lymphoma.

    Allen battled another form of immune system cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma, more than 20 years ago and survived. The CEO wrote that Allen "is optimistic he can beat this, too."

    "Paul is feeling OK and remains upbeat," she added. "He continues to work and he has no plans to change his role at Vulcan."

    I read Marrdy's headline and thought it was our PA that was going through this.

    You two posted this within 20 plus seconds of each other.

    34 seconds.
    And I'm the winner!
    (Only joking because Allen is expected to make a full recovery).
