It being stage 4 lymphoma points to it having begun elsewhere in his body and migrated to the lungs. Five-year survival rate of 65% that drops to zero when you factor in the other things he had going on. In other words, the perfect storm.
If I may add, it makes a very good case for getting a full blood profile yearly regardless of age. The best defense against cancer is early detection.
5 years ago my wife was diagnosed with Stage 4 non Hodgkins Lymphoma ( follicular, I think was type the doctor’s said or something like that). She had it in her lower back and in her hip (sacrum I believe). The doctors were confident the whole time that chemotherapy would treat her fine. They said it was a very treatable form of non hodgkins. She had to have a port put in and got aggressive chemotherapy treatment every 3 weeks. 6 hours treatments, but it got rid of the cancer. 6 months later she was cancer free and now has been going on 5 years. Come to think of it, I know a couple of people that have had a type of lymphoma and responded well to treatment. Not sure what could’ve been done in Ed’s case, if anything. Just sad to hear.
Ed's story is truly sad and tragic. But it is nice to hear that your family story has had a positive ending to date and we all pray for the continued good health of your wife.
This is absolutely terrible. I met him at a Gator Gathering years ago... he was a very respectful and good kid... sad to hear that he passed at a very young age. RIP and Go Gators!
My mother had it and went into remission. Two years later she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer. Because she was a smoker, it was impossible to know what was the cause.
This is nice: FWAA CREATES NEW AWARD IN MEMORY OF EDWARD ASCHOFF FWAA > News > Edward Aschoff Rising Star Award DALLAS (FWAA) – Edward Aschoff was always easy to spot in a press box – not just because of his dapper suit, his unique socks or trademark lapel pin – but also because of his infectious smile, his laugh, and his pure love for whatever assignment he was working on. Edward Aschoff Aschoff, a beloved ESPN college football reporter, died on Christmas Eve – his 34th birthday – from previously undetected Stage 4 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in his lungs. He was a bright light in our industry, one the FWAA hopes to honor through an annual Edward Aschoff Rising Star Award. Each year, the FWAA will recognize one promising journalist no older than 34, who has not only the talent and work ethic it takes to succeed in this business, but also the passion to make it better. Aschoff, a 2008 graduate of the University of Florida, loved people, and even as his career at ESPN escalated, he still guided and befriended younger journalists along the way. "He was someone I always looked forward to seeing when our paths crossed in a random SEC press box or elsewhere, someone who always encouraged me as a younger journalist trying to navigate my way through this business and life, someone I always admired – both for his work and his zest for life – and someone I could always count on for a laugh," said Tom Green, who was a student at Florida when he met Aschoff in 2010 and is now the Auburn beat reporter for AL.com/Alabama Media Group. "I'll always be grateful for his friendship, his advice and his respect, because I know I'm better for having known Ed. We all are." Aschoff moved to Los Angeles in 2017 to begin a more expanded national role that included television coverage. Over the past three seasons, he reported from campuses across the country for ESPN.com, SportsCenter, SEC Network and ESPN Radio, and he worked as a television and radio sideline reporter during college football games. Jordan McPherson, a student reporter at Florida from 2013-17 who is now covering the Miami Marlins for the Miami Herald, said Aschoff helped him on several occasions. "He was a pro's pro and touched my life with just a few brief interactions that he didn't have to make," McPherson said. "His positivity was infectious, his ability to mentor through simple conversation was second to none. He will be missed, but always be remembered." Last month, the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communications established the Edward Aschoff Memorial Fund, which will provide support for students involved in sports journalism. "Edward was one of our stars – not just because he was so talented as a journalist and storyteller, but also because of everything he did to help people around him. He always had a good word of advice for young journalists, he was always willing to give back, and he always made people smile," said Ted Spiker, chair of the department of journalism at the University of Florida who taught Edward in several classes at UF. During the 2015 college football season, Aschoff and ESPN.com colleague Adam Rittenberg were winners in the FWAA's annual best writing contest for their enterprise piece, "The racial impact of Eric Striker." Contest judge Michael Weinreb called it, "An eye-opening, surprisingly frank and timely examination about how college football is affected by issues of race and identity." Aschoff inspired us through his storytelling, brightened our lives with his gregarious personality, and uplifted our spirits with his energy. The FWAA hopes to honor his memory and his commitment to aspiring journalists with this award. "Edward epitomized everything you want in a sports journalist: He knew how to build relationships, to gain trust, to break stories but also to tell stories," said ESPN.com's Andrea Adelson. "And he did it all with a flair that made you want to watch his television pieces or read his written stories right away. His dogged determination and relentless work ethic allowed him to rise to the top at ESPN, and all his exemplary qualities serve as a model for young journalists everywhere about what truly can be achieved if you go after what you want." To submit nominations for this award, please send a paragraph or two about the nominee, including why you are nominating him or her, and three links of work samples to Heather Dinich at email@example.com. Please include your name, job title, and a phone number. A panel of FWAA members will choose the winner. Entries should be submitted by June 1. Founded in 1941, the Football Writers Association of America consists of 1,400 men and women who cover college football. The membership includes journalists, broadcasters and publicists, as well as key executives in all the areas that involve the game. The FWAA works to govern areas that include game-day operations, major awards and its annual All-America team.
