A ton of prayers and positive energy sent towards Foster Moreau.

The free agent tight end announced that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, and as a result, he is stepping away from the NFL.

Spending the last four seasons with the Las Vegas Raiders, the 25-year-old Foster Moreau revealed on Twitter that he received his cancer diagnosis after a physical with the New Orleans Saints.

Hodgkin lymphoma impacts the lymphatic system, which is a part of the germ-fighting immune system in the human body, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Here’s to a speedy recovery for Foster Moreau.

And the good news about that is the five-year “relative survival rate for all patients diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma is now about 89%,” according to the American Cancer Society. (RELATED: Tom Brady Declares Family Jokes Banned In Upcoming Netflix Roast)
