Gary Jobson Statement

  #

Gary Jobson has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. On April 24 Jobson's Annapolis office distributed the following statement:

"Before heading to the America's Cup in Auckland I developed an annoying cough. During my time covering the America's Cup I became quite fatigued between our ESPN shows. After returning from Auckland I set out on an ambitious lecture tour. As my lecture tour progressed, however, I became increasingly fatigued and the cough did not go away. With the assistance of an inhaler and rest on either side of my programs, I was able to speak. In the last 10 days things turned for the worse.

"Last week I started a series of tests that included a CT scan, a lymph node biopsy and a variety of other procedures. For me, it is difficult to walk and I am out of breath all the time. For the first time in my 30-year speaking career I have been forced to cancel presentations. Yesterday I was diagnosed with lymphoma, which is ironic since I have been chairman of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's regatta series for the past 11 years. I have been advised not to schedule any activities for the next two months. I will be receiving chemotherapy for the next six to eight months to battle back from this disease. I am going to be in a quiet period now for the next 10 days. Apparently, the treatments are hard.

"Sorry to give you this report. My spirits are good. I hope to be around the waterfront later this summer. (signed) Gary Jobson"
