Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy has once again been diagnosed with cancer.

In a statement, the network said, "Jerry Remy has been diagnosed once again with cancer".

Former NESN play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo tweeted support for Remy, saying "If there is anyone who can fight again, it's you".

NESN announced the longtime analyst's diagnosis and said his "focus is on his medical treatment". "The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this hard time", NESN said. He was given a clean bill of health this January and signed a multi-year extension with NESN. "Keep fighting!" Accompanying that was a photo of the ever-mustachioed Remy walking out of the Red Sox dugout as he was honored recently at Fenway Park.

Born in Fall River, growing up in Somerset, and now residing in Weston, Remy was voted Massachusetts' Favorite TV announcer by Sports Illustrated in 2004. He was drafted in 1971 by the California Angels - he played four years at the minor league level before getting called up by the Angles.

The 65-year old Remy has worked for NESN since 1988.
