Clate Schmidt says he is done with all treatments

Clemson pitcher Clate Schmidt was diagnosed with nodular sclerosing lymphoma in early June, but less than three months later he announced on Tuesday via his Twitter account that he is done with all of his cancer radiation treatments.

"Today I can finally say I’m done with all treatments, and I get to get back to Clemson," said Schmidt. "Can’t wait to start the grind with my brothers!"

Schmidt was a weekend starter most of the 2013 season and was a long reliever and weekday starter in 2014. In 121.2 innings, he has an 8-11 record and a 4.44 ERA.

He was drafted in the 32nd round (#951 overall) by the Boston Red Sox but will return to Clemson for his senior season.

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.
