Boston Red Sox fans were stunned Friday to learn that manager John Farrell had been diagnosed with Stage 1 lymphoma.

It was a feeling Tom Caron and Jerry Remy know all too well.

The two NESN mainstays both have been through their own bouts with cancer, and with the 2015 Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon taking place this week at Fenway Park, Caron and Remy took some time to share their stories during Saturday’s edition of “Red Sox Gameday LIVE.”

Watch their conversation in the video above.

The 14th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon presented by Arbella Insurance Foundation will take place on Tuesday, August 18 and Wednesday, August 19 in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Click here for more information and to donate.
