Alex Pledger Cancer Free
Awesome news with former NZ Breaker & Melbourne United NBL Centre Alex Pledger has been given a Cancer Free diagnosis 6months after he was told he had the disease.
The 2.15m former Tall Black has been battling colorectal cancer since March and had been undergoing intensive chemotherapy and radiation in a bid to shrink what was a substantial tumour, before undergoing surgery last month.
"Just received my post op pathology results...margins were clear and the 22 lymph nodes that were removed didn't have a single cancer cell in them," Pledger tweeted.
Awesome news for Alex, his Wife, family & friends.
Hopefully we see the big Chief back on a basketball court sooner rather than later.
