Former 38 Studios Founder Curt Schilling Diagnosed With Cancer

Okay, so he's not the best businessman in the world. He still doesn't deserve this.

Former Boston Red Sox ace Curt Schilling has been diagnosed with cancer, as he recently told ESPN. Schilling currently works at ESPN as a baseball analyst. In a statement, the ex-pitcher said:

"I've always believed life is about embracing the gifts and rising up to meet the challenges. We've been presented with another challenge, as I've recently been diagnosed with cancer."

His wife Shonda is a cancer survivor, so he'll have some successful strength on his side. As for Schilling, he suffered a heart attack in 2011 and required surgery, and his health has been questionable since. The stress of the 38 Studios debacle probably didn't help matters, unfortunately.

Schilling added:

"Shonda and I want to send a sincere thank you and our appreciation to those who have called and sent prayers, and we ask that if you are so inclined, to keep the Schilling family in your prayers."

38 Studios went bankrupt last year and Schilling has been involved in a heated legal battle with the state of Rhode Island. Right now, they're considering a settlement that may end matters, but that pales in comparison to Schilling's diagnosis. Here's hoping he beats it!

Not to be rude or offensive but judging by alot of baseball players physical bodies i can say they don't excercise or eat well, and by that thumbnail of him in his prime at his pro baseball career if hes that overweight in his sport , i cannot fathom the thought of how his body and eating habits are now that he is not playing pro ball , i can put two and two together and say his wife probably had cancer because they roughly both share the same lifestyle and eating habits , thats not a health looking man sad to see most pro baseballers are the same , for him and his wife to both have cancer and with him looking like that in his pro ball years i can conclude that he and his wife did not treat themselves properly in terms of nutrition , just my two cents and i say this on a non gamer level not to offend anyone i havev my preyers to him and his family , but i do it so as to just give you all insight that most diseases can be avoided hell i might get cancer even if i take care of myself but thats just destiny not bad luc, but excercise and a clean diet can deminish most of these diseases.

Most position players need to be in extremely good shape. Also, Schilling played largely during the steroid era when the game was about power. Now, the game is about athleticism. Take a look at all MLB rosters. You'll find the majority of guys are in excellent shape.

Additionally, he was a pitcher. All you need is to be able to throw the ball really hard and with movement and accuracy. It's not like he has to run marathons or make diving catches. Heck... he played in the American League... he didn't even have to bat!

Slow news day? :)

Seriously though, he's had cancer before so I'm not surprised.

Cancer is a Monster that must be stopped. It took away my sister on January 12th 2014. I pray that he can defeat this dark disease.
