NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy has been diagnosed with cancer again.

On Tuesday, the network released a statement: "Jerry Remy has been diagnosed once again with cancer. At this time, Jerry’s focus is on his medical treatment. The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time."

This is Remy's sixth time battling cancer, as he had his last treatment from the fifth time back in January. Remy underwent five weeks of radiation treatment following chemotherapy in August and surgery for lung cancer on June 26 of last year.

The 65-year-old and former Red Sox second baseman was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008.
