NESN's Jerry Remy has a message for fans supporting him in his latest bout with cancer: I'm gonna fight this.

Posting on Twitter one day after it was announced he would leave the broadcast booth after a recurrence of the pernicious disease, Remy sounded positive while thanking fans for their encouragement.

"Thank you for all of your support," Remy wrote. "This has hit me hard but I have never quit and will not now. I have complete trust in my team at Mass General. Bring it home Sox !!!"

This is the sixth time Remy has been diagnosed with cancer since 2008. The 65-year-old former second baseman completed his most recent round of treatment in January.
