    Oh goodness. That is very disheartening.

    Prayers to the Pagano family. Praying that God blesses them with recovery and peace of mind.

    Man, this really sucks. My thoughts go out to Chuck and his family. One of my best friends passed away in April at the age of 24 from leukemia... he was diagnosed back in August 2009. I really hope Chuck can beat it.

    My prayers sent for him and his family! Times like this is when football just doesn't seem to matter. I pray the docs are right, and he goes into remission.

    APML is a rare variant of leukemia. It wasn't that long ago that it was a unequivocal immediate death sentence. If you are going to be diagnosed with leukemia, today this is as favorable as it probably gets. These are commonly treated with an offshoot substance of Vitamin A an old trick stolen from Oriental herbal medicine. 80% of patients will initially attain a total remission. For those that don't totally respond, they discovered that using an older trick (around 400 BC) of Hippocrates , adding a pinch of arsenic was very likely to do the trick. Today APML patients are expected to essentially show 100% survival for at least 5 years.

    Prayer and thoughts to him and his family.
