Red Sox Broadcaster Jerry Remy Making Strides in Cancer Treatment

Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy says he's feeling good while he continues to undergo treatment for cancer.

Remy, who turned 65 Wednesday, underwent surgery for lung cancer on June 26 — his fifth relapse. He began chemotherapy late in August before returning to NESN's broadcast booth for a few games in September.

On Tuesday night, Remy tweeted he is now moving on to radiation.
