According to a story via ABC News, former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling says that he has been diagnosed with cancer.

“I’ve always believed life is about embracing the gifts and rising up to meet the challenges,” Schilling said in a statement released by ESPN. “We’ve been presented with another challenge, as I’ve recently been diagnosed with cancer.”

Schilling was supposed to be starting his new gig on Sunday Night Baseball for ESPN, but it’s now unclear what will happen going forward. ESPN issued this statement.

“Our thoughts are with Curt and his family during this challenging time,” the network said in a statement. “His ESPN teammates wish him continued strength in his cancer fight and we look forward to welcoming him back to our baseball coverage whenever he’s ready.”

This beyond horrible news for Schilling and his family, my thoughts and prayers go out to them as they face this ordeal.
