Word "cancer" was left out of Gill's statement. I wonder how the Herald decided to bring that into it. I think they just did a cancer screening in a situation that requires it. But the team obviously didn't want to start throwin' "cancer" around. And if Tony Mazz can say "the team is tight-lipped about it," well how is it that he, of a major newspaper, knows about it, and then tells everyone? I just don't get how this whole system works.
