In August, Vitale announced that he had undergone multiple operations to remove melanoma. He wrote in October that doctors did not believe that the diagnosis of lymphoma was related.

In an article on ESPN, Vitale wrote that experts told him that the cure rate for his lymphoma was 90%.

“They said I can continue to work, so I will have to manage my work schedule around my chemotherapy plan because they will monitor my test results during the process,” he wrote.

Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system and an important part of the immune system. The lymphatic system is made up of ducts or pipes throughout the body, along the path with filters called lymph nodes. The system carries a clear liquid with immune fighting cells (such as lymphocytes).

ESPN Chairman Jimmy Pitaro said in announcing Vitale’s cancer diagnosis: “Dick Vitale is a broadcaster and a unique treasure for humans.” “His love for family And his unremitting enthusiasm to help people in need, especially children, really defines his greatness. He is loved by ESPN’s family and has our full support.”
