Joe Gibbs' Grandson Battling Leukemia

I just heard it on Tony Stewart's Sirius radio show.
I lost my uncle/best friend to that just last month, thoughts and prayers to Joe and his family. Treatments start tomorrow.

p.s. My apologies to the Moderators if I posted this in the wrong thread.

Man, I wonder why he said that. It thought it was supposed to be under wraps.

Definitely wishing him a full and speedy recovery

Apparently it is treatable...most likely stage 1 based on how they explained it.

Sorry to hear that, for yourself and for the Gibbs family. I can relate to that completely I lost a grandmother to leukemia.

There are different flavors. Some are more or less chronic, but it can be handled, at least to some degree. The other just kills you out right............fast

Re: JD Gibbs has leukemia...

Wow, another tough one to handle for the Gibbs family this year. Hopefully they caught this early and it will be treatable. Best of luck to JD and the rest of the family fighting through this.

My prayers go out to the Gibbs family. I am all too familiar with what he must go through, and I wish him the very best.
