Steve Sabol has brain tumor
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. -- NFL Films president Steve Sabol will undergo radiation and chemotherapy treatment after doctors discovered a tumor on the left side of his brain.
NFL Films released a statement Friday about the 68-year-old Sabol, who was hospitalized March 5 in Kansas City, Mo., after suffering a seizure.
"[Sabol] will begin treatments soon," the company's statement said. "Steve is in good spirits and is deeply appreciative of everyone's good wishes."
Sabol has worked with NFL Films since 1964. His father, Ed, was elected on the day before last month's Super Bowl to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
