Blazers Owner Paul Allen Has Cancer

Terrible news out of Portland, as it was announced that team owner Paul Allen has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma: “Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen has been diagnosed with having non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a team representative said Monday. Allen began chemotherapy sessions earlier this month, according to Vulcan, Inc., spokesman David Postman. Postman said a message was sent out Monday about Allen’s diagnosis by Jody Allen, CEO of Vulcan and Paul’s sister. ‘It didn’t go into a lot of detail,’ Postman said. This marks the second time Allen has been diagnosed with a form of Hodgkin’s disease. He was successfully treated for the illness 26 years ago. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system.”
