    My sister-in-law had Hodgkin's. I know it is very beatable. I don't know much about non-Hodgkin's but I think it is supposed to be worse.

    Better survival rates for Hodgkins

    Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas aren't that common in someone as young as Berry. More likely Hodgkin's, which has a pretty good 5 year survival rate.

    Non Hodgkins is pretty bad.

    Just freaking heartbreaking. He was/is one of the few sources of pride this program has had over these horrible last 8 years. Aside from being an all pro and perhaps the best pure safety I've ever seen play SEC football, EB is a first class individual. Much love to him and his family. Godspeed Eric Berry. **** cancer.

    Depends on the type and how far along things are at diagnosis.

    And the hits keep on coming for vol fandom.

    Let us all hope that young Eric Berry will come through this, as this is horrible news.
