'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Boston Red Sox Star Pitcher Jon Lester
Date:4/1/2009

WASHINGTON, April 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the 2009 Major League Baseball season opens this month, Sharing Miracles, a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients, will feature Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester. Sharing Miracles now airs every Sunday morning on more than 280 stations -- including WBZ-TV (CBS) in Boston from 11:30 to noon.

Jon Lester made his major league debut with the Boston Red Sox in 2006 at the young age of 22. However, after only nine games with the Sox, he was diagnosed with cancer - specifically, anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

In this month's episode, Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein discusses the diagnosis: "We were almost more shaken by it than he was. He was calmer about it and took an almost business-like approach to it."

Lester explains: "Being diagnosed was surreal. I was in the emergency room, just trying to get some back pain under control. I spent a couple of days at home in Seattle, flew back to Boston to get some tests done, and found out that it was lymphoma."

With the determination he had developed as an athlete, Lester charged head-first into treatment with positive expectations: "Looking at the treatment process, the dates lined up perfectly with spring training. When I found out that once I had my last treatment, I'd have a couple of weeks to recover and enjoy being cured and then go to spring training, it gave me a huge boost."

Epstein elaborates: "He said, 'I'm going to step away for a little bit. You're not going to hear from me a lot...and I'm going to come back stronger.' And that's exactly what he did."

Speaking in this month's episode, scientist Dr. Karen Ferrante explains the advances made in lymphoma treatment: "The outlook for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients has significantly
