Baltimore Orioles’ Trey Mancini declared Tuesday he is undergoing chemotherapy for Stage 3 colon cancer.
In a letter entitled “I Am So Fortunate” posted on the Players’ Tribune web-site, Mancini wrote that he started out emotion far more fatigued than normal during spring coaching in Florida. He thought it was because of to “getting older.”
Adhering to a series of blood tests and strategies, doctors found out Mancini experienced a tumor on his colon.
The tumor was removed on March twelve, Mancini reported.
“I have Stage III colon cancer. I started out chemotherapy on April 13,” Mancini wrote. “And I am so blessed.”
In 2011, Mancini reported his father experienced Stage two colon cancer when he was 58 decades previous.
Mancini wrote that without the need of the Orioles’ physical checkups, his cancer analysis would not have been caught in time as he only noted getting far more fatigued than normal.
“My treatment will take 6 months — every single two months for 6 months,” Mancini wrote. “If baseball returns in 2020, it will most likely be without the need of me.”
The 27-12 months-previous writes additional about his occupation, many thanks the staff and his lovers, which includes Mo Gaba, 14, who has been preventing cancer because he was 9 months previous.
