Memphis forward announces cancer diagnosis on social media

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis forward Karim Sameh Azab announced Saturday that he has been diagnosed with cancer and has started treatment.

"I found out a few weeks ago that I had developed leukemia lymphoma (AML, ALL)," Azab wrote in a Twitter post Saturday morning. "I have since started treatment and am working through the process, but I wanted to spread the word and ask for prayers to help strengthen me in this journey."

AML is acute myeloid leukemia and ALL is acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Both are cancers of the bone marrow and blood cells that can progress rapidly without treatment.
