BASEBALL: Tough Times

Jon Lester has non-Hodkins Lymphoma, which may sound - in Larry David's words - like "the good Hodkins" but it's still plenty scary for a 22-year-old. Let's hope he makes a full recovery. David Ortiz is still being tested.

Brad Radke has a stress fracture in his shoulder and may be done for the year.

David Wells is finally throwing in the towel after this season.

Actually Hodgkin's Disease is the "good Hodgkin's" but Lester has a non-Hodgkins Lymphoma that while being quite rare has the best prognosis of any non-Hodgkin's.

My name is Priscilla Perry and I am an Occupational Therapist who works for the Pentucket Regional School District. (I work at the Bagnall School on School Street in Groveland,MA)
The boys that I work with are sports enthusiast. I was wondering if you could either provide me with an address for a fan club for John Lester, and/or a way that my students could send him some get well cards. It would be great for my kids and hopefully uplifting to Mr. Lester.
Thanks for your consideration of this matter.
