Flip Saunders Rumors
There’s no question things have changed dramatically since the team announced his diagnosis in August, back when it quoted his doctors saying the cancer was very treatable and curable. Since then there have been changes to the way his body handled the chemotherapy (and maybe how much cancer they’ve found) that have made it life threatening. Everyone involved has gone radio silent because of the family’s request for privacy and federal patient-privacy laws, etc., but between the complete silence, the lack of people visiting as far as I can tell apart from his immediate family and very inner circle while he remains hospitalized here in Minneapolis and the things I’m hearing second-hand, well, none of it is good.

I reached out to Coach Saunders, just let him know I was praying for him and I’m with him — that he would get through this. “He’s fighting it. He’s in good spirits and he’ll definitely get through this and still be part of this team, this organization in a big way like he has been.”
