Lester’s father also has lymphoma

One thing that has been weighing on Jon Lester’s mind these past starts: His father has been diagnosed with a treatable form of lymphoma, two years after Lester had to brave chemotherapy to fight his own non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This cancer is not aggressive in its current stage, and will not require immediate treatment, like the younger Lester. But that makes the no-hitter last week that much more poignant to Lester and his family. Best wishes to the Lester family.
