Davy Lopes to Undergo Cancer Surgery

Monday, March 3, 2008 ·

Phillies first-base coach has to undergo prostate cancer surgery later this month and he'll be away from the Phils for six weeks.

"It's unfortunate, but fortunate," said an emotional Jamie Moyer, who works with cancer patients and their families through charitable work at Camp Erin. "It's fortunate that we do physicals, and early enough to catch something like that. And it's unfortunate that he has prostate cancer."

"Hopefully, it was caught in time," he said. "It sounds like it was detected early, they'll knock it out and life will go on. You tip your hat to the medical staff, to the organization that has the physicals. Obviously, it could turn into something far worse if they didn't catch it. Hopefully, they caught it in time. Hopefully, it can be a positive story."
We all hope you get well soon Davy.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
