Clemson pitcher Clate Schmidt was diagnosed with nodular sclerosing lymphoma on Monday according to his twitter account.

Schmidt said the following on Tuesday afternoon via twitter: "Yesterday I was diagnosed with nodular sclerosing lymphoma. It's just another path that God has sent me down that we didn't plan on. It's something that they caught early and it's treatable with chemo and therapy. We are gonna be surrounded by the best of the best. Thank you everyone for your love and support. And can't wait to start kickin cancers a** on my own front."

According to wikipedia, Nodular sclerosis (or "NSHL") is a form of Hodgkin's lymphoma that is the most common subtype of HL in developed countries. It affects females slightly more than males and has a median age of onset at ~28 years. It is composed of large tumor nodules with lacunar Reed-Sternberg cell (RS cells) surrounded by fibrotic collagen bands.

Official Clemson Bio: Righthander who was a weekend starter most of the 2013 season and was a long reliever and weekday starter in 2014 ... in 121.2 innings pitched over 36 appearances (19 starts) and two seasons, he has an 8-11 record and a 4.44 ERA while allowing 147 hits (.301 opponents’ batting average), three homers and 54 walks with 78 strikeouts.
