NFL  > Cleveland Browns  > Jim Donnovan--Get Well Soon
May 26, 2011, 08:59 AM
Jim,

Like most, I had no idea that you had leukemia. You've been the voice of the Browns since '99 and have showed exceptional energy and professionalism every game--despite not really having too much to be excited about. You've touched a lot of people, especially folks like me that moved from Ohio and would listen to your broadcasts streaming on the internet. I wanted to wish you the best of luck on your upcoming bone marrow transplant. Rest assured that you will not be short on prayers and warm wishes. Can't wait to have you back in the saddle for the upcoming Cleveland Browns football season.

Get well soon,

LCBF

Nice post! LCB. wishing him the best. I hate to hear this kind of stuff happening to good people.

Thx JD. This kind of stuff happens to **** too; they just do not get glorified as much. Jim Donnovan does a Great job up in the booth during Browns games; and for the last 11 years he's been dealing with cancer and nobody outside of immediate family and friends knew about it.

According to Tony Grossi (Cleveland Plain Dealer 8/7/2011): I've spoken to Jim on a few occasions since his bone marrow transplant surgery. Everything went well with the surgery and the donor match. He has experienced a few complications, which were not unexpected, but the overall prognosis for a full recovery is good. That doesn't mean he doesn't face some challenges, however. Jim has been very appreciative of the warm wishes extended to him during this time.

I don't know who he is but I pity any poor soul and their family that has to go through the anguishes of cancer. Its good to hear that modern medicine is giving him a fighting chance.
