Joe Paterno Has Lung Cancer

Joe Paterno has lung cancer. Paterno’s son, Scott, made the announcement in a statement to the Associated Press today. Paterno is undergoing treatment and doctors are optimistic.

“As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as he proceeds with treatment,” Scott Paterno said in a brief statement.

Paterno will be 85 next month. He was fired on November 9th in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
