One day after learning his non-Hodgkins lymphoma is in remission, Red Sox Manager John Farrell says he is feeling grateful.
During a Friday afternoon conference call with reporters, Farrell said he's recovering after treatment.
"Basically there was six months of chemo given in an eight week period," Farrell said. "That was to combat the aggressive nature of the cancer."
Farrell described the treatment regimen as "pretty intense."
"It beat me up physically, but honestly right now, feeling pretty darn good."
Farrell was diagnosed with cancer in August and missed the last six weeks of the baseball season. But he said he watched every Red Sox game and stayed connected with the team, which he credits with helping him through the cancer fight.
