Radio Facts: Vet Steve Kerrigan is having to take a break from his air shift to take care of himself and family. A note posted on the Radio Station ‘s website follows, we wish Steve well:
He has multiple myeloma, a rare form of blood cancer that has no cure right now. After chemo and a stem cell transplant in November 2008, he quickly went into remission and enjoyed good health for nearly a year. In February of this year, he came out of remission and has been waging the war again. Steve has been doing a lot of “soul searching” lately. After Friday’s show, we taped an interview that aired this morning where he announced, “I just wanted to tell the folks that I’m not going to be here for the foreseeable future. I’m going to take some time off for health reasons to take care of myself. I hate cancer. It’s an ugly thing, and unfortunately, it’s touched another member of my family as well. I want to be there for them. Thanks for your support and I hope to talk with you all very soon!” You can leave a message for Kerrigan right here or on our Facebook page.
