Jon Lester, Shane Victorino Tweet Support For Curt Schilling After Cancer Diagnosis


Curt Schilling announced this week that he has been diagnosed with cancer. The news really hit home for the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox offered their heartfelt thoughts via the club’s official Twitter account shortly after Schilling’s announcement. Jon Lester and Shane Victorino also sent their well wishes to the former Red Sox pitcher.

Lester, of course, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in the middle of the 2006 season. He underwent successful treatment and returned to the mound in 2007.

Check out the Red Sox’ support for Schilling in the tweets below.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
