The struggles of the Anderson family has captured the hearts and minds of the hockey world this season, and we're happy to report that there is some good news to share regarding that saga today.
Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson has stepped away from the game as he supports his wife Nicholle Anderson during her battle with cancer, but today it was Nicholle herself who shared the good news with the hockey world.
Here is the statement she released to the public in full:
I am really excited to share this news today. My tumor has responded positively in the right direction.
The image on the left, shows a CT scan taken November 9, 2016 before treatment began. The purple area displays a white clouded area known as Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. The black area signifies the air passage ways.
Now take a look at the CT scan on the right taken today. The white clouded area has started to diminish. The black area shows an improvement of the air passage way. This means the tumor has responded and has started to shrink.
The Anderson’s are smiling BIG today!
While she's obviously not out of the woods yet it's certainly wonderful to hear that things are moving in the right direction, and below you can see the CT scan she was referring to in her statement.
