    Re: #95 Kenechi Udeze diagnosed with Leukemia

    I was more in shock if that was what I actually heard. I was doing something else and kida paying attention to the news and did a double take. I hope he gets better and wish him and his family the best

    Re: #95 Kenechi Udeze diagnosed with Leukemia

    This is awful. I feel so bad for a young man with so much promise. He is not just an observer in life, but he was one of the few that went out and made his dreams come true. It's sad to see this happen to a person like that.

    My thoughts are with him, his family, and his teammates.

    I don't really know what else to say.

    Re: #95 Kenechi Udeze diagnosed with Leukemia

    Information about Lukemia
    http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org/all_page.adp?item_id=9346

    Leukemia* is a malignant disease (cancer) of the bone marrow and blood. It is characterized by the uncontrolled accumulation of blood cells. Leukemia is divided into four categories: myelogenous or lymphocytic, each of which can be acute or chronic. The terms myelogenous or lymphocytic denote the cell type involved. Thus, the four major types of leukemia are:



    * Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia


    * Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia


    * Acute Myelogenous Leukemia


    * Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

    Acute leukemia is a rapidly progressing disease that results in the accumulation of immature, functionless cells in the marrow and blood. The marrow often can no longer produce enough normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Anemia, a deficiency of red cells, develops in virtually all leukemia patients. The lack of normal white cells impairs the body's ability to fight infections. A shortage of platelets results in bruising and easy bleeding.

    Chronic leukemia progresses more slowly and allows greater numbers of more mature, functional cells to be made.

    Thanks Garland

    -again hopefully it's not too serious, so sad that such a terrible mis fortune could happen to somebody so young and in the prime of their life, we'll just have to see, he can make it through this, stay strong!

    Off the wall question, But there was a post a day or 2 ago about the Vikings being the only players that visited a pediatric cancer ward. Do we think they already knew and this was somehow related?

    A possibility, but i think it would've gotten out, I'm sure the Viking players would have dedicated their pro bowl game to him along with Shaun, but who knows

    I really doubt they did since its been said the players have been struck hard by the news now, I'm sure it would have shown during the Pro Bowl if they had known, especially from his fellow linemen Kevin & Pat.


    This makes the vikings visit to the Ward even more meaningful..

    Wow, that is not good.


    Very Sad!

    The Carolina Panthers went through something similar with two players a few years back.
    One guy made it another didn't.
    I don't think either had this form of cancer.
    Very sad!
