    ESPN NFL analyst Chris Mortensen diagnosed with throat cance

    More than a week ago, I was diagnosed with a Stage IV throat cancer," Mortensen said in a statement on Friday. "My focus shifted significantly to gathering information about the specifics of this cancer. The initial diagnosis was confirmed Friday and there is another test remaining that will determine the best possible treatment plan that will commence in the very immediate future.

    This is terrible news. He's one of the sharper and most respected football analysts out here. Best of luck to him.

    Pretty much everything you post is either stupid or shitty. This is both. I'm sorry you feel you need negative attention from an internet forum. Daddy only touched you when he spanked you?

    Vitamin B17 found in apricot seed nuts. Big pharma makes money in drug sales that slows down death process.

    Not a smart reporter when it came to deflategate. He provided a lot of information that was proven to be false once findings were released and never provided a retraction.

    It's all over the internet. Michael Douglas got throat cancer by performing oral sex on his wife. Not my fault you are an uneducated hillbilly who had sex with his sister in the barn.

    No, but it is your fault you're making light of a sad situation. Time and place.

    stage 4 means that it has metastasized (spread) to a distant organ. usually they distinguish the type where it originated so for him it started in the throat but he may should have other tumors in other organs which is why it is stage 4....

    their are many many forms of cancer and just because you know someone who "cured" their cancer by eating apricot seeds or something else doesnt mean shit for other people. even the new cutting edge stuff like opdivo which are regular infusions of immune cells only work on a % of the cancer population. their are a lot to factor into as each cancer has a different histological makeup their is not just one size glove that fits all. case in point if you search for cure for cancer on google, you will get a few billion different results all claiming to have found the cure, all claiming that big pharm is not allowing it to be released, all the info can be yours for $29.99...
