Kenechi Udeze has leukemia
Minnesota Vikings Densive End Kenechi Udeze(KU) has been diagnosed with leukemia. The exact diagnosis and how far the leukemia is along is unknown to the public at least. This is something is much more than just football--it is a about a life.Sources said Udeze was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester early last week and is now at a Twin Cities hospital receiving treatment.
What is leukemia anyways??
It is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow and is characterized by an abnormal proliferation (production by multiplication) of blood cells, usually white blood cells (leukocytes). It is part of the broad group of diseases called hematological neoplasms.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leukemia)
My thoughts and prayers go out to KU and his family as well as any person that has a loved that suffers from this condition.
