Maclin cleared of lymphoma

2

Great news. Maclin said he learned back in the spring that he may have lymphoma, cancer of the lymphatic cells in the immune system. "That’s nothing anyone ever wants to hear," Maclin said. "That’s a hard time — the thought that at any given time you can get that call that they found cancer. It was eating away at me and it was hard for me to hide. I wanted to keep it private until I knew for sure what was going on and the Eagles were amazing. They were one of the only ones who knew. My relationship with them is more than professional. They were like family during this. "That first day when the doctor sat me down and explained to me exactly what lymphoma is, that it’s a form of cancer, it hit me when I walked out of his office and I broke down. It was hard for me but I had to remain positive. "The crazy part was I put weight back on, I was working out, running routes. I felt fine but the thought was always in the back of my mind that I could have cancer." Reuben Frank
