Last month, ESPN reporter Edward Aschoff died and many thought he passed away from pneumonia, but in a series of tweets from his fiance’, they found out that Aschoff died of advanced non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, not pneumonia.
Aschoff died on Christmas Eve at age 34. Further tests after his death revealed the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which was centered in his lungs and had reached stage 4.
Berteau revealed the diagnosis on Aschoff’s Twitter page, and said it would be the final update.
“Hi all, Katy again- this will be my last post on Edward’s social media. I wanted to provide an update about Edward’s passing that may help people in processing it and making a little more sense of what happened,” she wrote. “After his passing, the hospital received the final results from his lung biopsy. Unbeknownst to us, Edward had stage 4, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in his lungs. This is an aggressive type of cancer that is usually undetectable until it is very advanced.”
Please pray for his fiance’ and his family in this tough loss.
