Louisiana Tech announces RB Jaqwis Dancy is cancer free
The running back was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin lymphoma in October
Four months after receiving the worst news of his life, Louisiana Tech running back Jaqwis Dancy received the best.
According to a release from the school, Dancy, diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin lymphoma in October, is now cancer free. Hodgkin's lymphoma is the same form of treatable cancer that Pittsburgh running back James Conner was diagnosed with in 2015 before returning to the field last season.
Dancy received several rounds of chemotherapy and will go through a couple of rounds of radiation to ensure he remains cancer-free. Dancy received the good news on Thursday.
"It felt amazing when I heard the news that I am cancer-free," Dancy said. "It was something I have been waiting to hear since I was diagnosed and I can't wait to share my happiness with all my teammates. I especially want to thank the LA Tech family and everyone who supported me in this fight. The support I have received since the beginning has been amazing. My biggest goal right now is to get back on the field with my teammates."
Congratulations to Dancy, and here's to a long and healthy life.
