Longtime Vancouver Canucks broadcaster Joey Kenward has cancer.

The 46-year-old announced on social media Saturday night that he was diagnosed with leukaemia on November 24 and has been undergoing treatment at the Vancouver General Hospital ever since.

“I’ve been healthy and showed no signs of anything being abnormal (outside of a few days prior to my diagnosis),” Kenward wrote in a note shared on social media.

“As much as I want nothing more to be at home with my beautiful partner & wonderful 2-year-old son (which I hope will happen soon enough) the best place for me to be right now is under the medical care of physicians and nurses,” continued Kenward. “Words can’t express how thankful I am for how I’ve been treated to this point.”
