Kenechi Udeze Diagnosed With Leukemia

New, comment

From the Star-Tribune.  It's being reported by KSTP in Minneapolis as well.

Kenechi Udeze of the Vikings has been diagnosed with a form of leukemia, KSTP (Ch. 5) reported Monday night.

The station did not reveal the source for its story on its website. It said that Udeze's doctors are trying to determine what grade of leukemia he is dealing with and that it could take several weeks.

KMSP (Ch. 9) also reported the news, saying Udeze is at Fairview Southdale Hospital undergoing tests and that he was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester last week.

Well, this sucks.  Hopefully the doctors caught big #95's leukemia early enough where they can treat it with as little trouble as possible.  I've never personally dealt with anyone having leukemia before, so I really don't know a hell of a lot about it, but I'm certainly going to spend some time here educating myself about it.

Try to keep BKU in your thoughts and prayers, ladies and gentlemen.  He certainly needs it.

We'll have more on this story as it becomes available.
