New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman announced on Tuesday that he has Lymphoma. Gettleman, 67, stated it was discovered during a routine medical checkup.
“Recently, I underwent an annual physical, during which it was discovered I have lymphoma,” Gettleman said a statement. “Over the past week, I have undergone more testing to determine the course of treatment, which is scheduled to start in the very near future. The doctor’s outlook for the treatment and the prognosis is positive, and so am I,” Gettleman said with much optimism about his diagnosis.
Dave announced he would keep working as much as possible during his treatment cycles, he would also stay in communications with Assistant GM Kevin Abrams and head coach Pat Shurmur.
Gettleman is focused on getting the Giants back into contention after a rough year. Since joining the Giants in December, Gettleman had his first NFL Draft at the position taking RB Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick and guard Will Hernandez to help their offense head in a new direction.
