Jon Lester Tweets fellow MLB Cancer Survivor Chad Bettis

After being diagnosed with cancer in November, Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Chad Bettis was notified in December that he had beat it. But he was dealt another blow when in March, the 14-game winner found out that the cancer had returned during spring training.

Chad is a survivor and returned to the mound last night. Bettis’ inspirational comeback on Monday night looked like this: 7 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 0 BB. Seven shutout innings in undoubtedly the most emotional start of his career. What a story.

Updated Chad Bettis Responds.
