Gary Tanguay announced in a video message on Monday he is battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The Boston sports media personality and NBC Sports Boston anchor began his message with a recap of current events in Boston sports before revealing his diagnosis.

“Big sports news day here in New England as the Bruins survive, the Red Sox seem to be turning it around, and the Celtics are thriving,” Tanguay said. “I wanted to share some personal news of my own with you, that I have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. So my appearance is going to be changing.  I have the hat on now because my hair is almost all gone. The next time I am on TV, it will be completely gone, so I just want to give you a little warning.”

“I’m under great care at Brigham and Women’s (hospital) and also Dana-Farber. My cancer is treatable and I consider myself to be very, very lucky,” he continued. “I look forward to hearing your thoughts and critiques, and I’m sure you won’t let up about my cockamamie predictions on Twitter. So thanks again guys, and hopefully our teams will keep it going.”

We wish him all the very best.
