San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano spoke for the first time Thursday about his brother Chuck's illness.
Chuck Pagano, the Indianapolis Colts head coach, has been diagnosed with a treatable form of leukemia and has taken a leave of absence from the team in order to fight the disease.
"It's been tough for my brother with what he's going through," Pagano told the Associated Press. "I want to thank everybody for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes extended to our family. It means a lot.
"Chuck is doing good. He's a fighter, and he's going to fight right through this. We text and talk all the time which is good, but it's a challenge for him. That said, he's going to overcome this. There's no doubt about that."
