  • Vikes Udeze has leukemia

    It's easy to forget sometimes that these guys are human beings with families like the rest of us. Tragic.

        I'm not a doctor, but I believe it is cancer of the bone marrow, which produces red blood cells.

          Correct animal. I guess he'll have to leave football.

            ouch tough tough break. Best of luck Udeze.

            So the Vikings might be thinking DE in the 1st round of the draft now?

              DE in the first two rounds, I'd have to think.

              Didn't Panthers LB Mark Fields have the same thing?

                  Fields had Hodgkin's disease which is a form of lymphoma.

                  There was another Panther LB if you all remember Sam Mills who played with Fields who was diagnoised with Intestinal Cancer. Mills died in 2005

                      I love Mark Fields! He was a perfect compliment to the Panthers defensive line, and the linebackers. He was really the center piece of the defense in 2002. That was when our line was godly. I think the starting four on the line had 34 sacks, and Mark Fields had 7 sacks, like 120+ tackles.

                      He took that year off and when he came back, he just was not the same player. Too bad, I loved the guy.

                        My time to shine.

                        Leukemia is indeed affects the bone marrow, however you get too many white cells (the ones that help fight infections), unfortunately all the white cells are the same though, and it's the diversity of them that helps recognise all the different kind of bugs that invade otherwise healthy people.

                        There are 4 main kinds, all with different prognoses. However, I wouldn't want to suffer from any of them. My sympathies to Udeze and his family.

                          Leukemia if it is gone undetected for more than a few months is a death sentence.

                            Unfortunately, that's true.

                              Absolutely shocking. Thoughts are with him and his family.
