Congrats to Jon Lester of the Boston Red Sox for throwing a no-hitter. It was, in fact, the first no-hitter thrown by a left-handed Rex Sox pitcher since 1956.
Not bad for a guy who had to battle for his life against lymphoma. Lymphomas account for about five percent of all cases of cancer in the United States, and Hodgkin's lymphoma in particular accounts for less than one percent of all cases of cancer in the United States.
My own dad has had both non-Hodgkins and Hodgkins lymphoma, so I can kind of appreciate what this guy has had to go through to get back to where he is today - and throw a no-hitter.
Is It Self-Sabotage?
