Former Las Vegas Raiders and current NFL free agent Foster Moreau has announced via Twitter that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
It was discovered while he was visiting with the New Orleans Saints, and they were conducting a routine physical earlier this month.
The exact diagnosis is Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer that attacks your immune system.
Moreau shared in the Twitter thread:
“Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this Free Agency period has been life changing for me.
During a routine physical conducted by the Saint’s medical team down in New Orleans, I’ve come to learn that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and will be stepping away from football”
“… at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer. I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me.
There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the path before me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.”
“That being said, I’ll go kick this thing’s ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!”
As sad as the situation is, it’s great to see that the 25-year-old is taking on this difficult process with a positive attitude, and we wish him nothing but a speedy recovery, and hope to see him back on the gridiron very soon.
Moreau is a former fourth-round pick out of LSU in the 2019 NFL Draft, and has amassed 91 receptions, 1,107 receiving yards, and 12 touchdowns in his four years in the NFL.
