Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008, had surgery to remove part of his lung. His recovery was a long one, but he made a recovery all the same and continues to be an institution in the Red Sox booth. He recently signed a contract extension with NESN.

Sad news now, as NESN announced this morning that Remy’s cancer has returned. He will speak about it later this afternoon. There’s no sense yet of how much time he’ll miss.

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Remy and Sox fans everywhere for whom he provides a key part of the soundtrack for each summer.
