[Kansas City.com] Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt is “fighting,” but he still remains hospitalized in Dallas two weeks after being treated for a partially collapsed lung.
The club was tight-lipped on his condition Wednesday, and Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson would only say that he visited Hunt earlier in the week and that “he’s working hard to try to get well and get out of the hospital.”
“That’s really all that can and should be said about it at this point.”
Hunt, 74, has been battling prostate cancer since his 1998 diagnosis. He had his prostate removed in 2003, and wrapped up a round of radiation treatments last month. He still kept a 40-plus-hour work week.
“We sincerely appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers for Lamar Hunt,” Peterson said Wednesday. “We’ve had wonderful fans, and that’s certainly been expressed to us through the Chiefs.”
