Coach Pagano In Remission

Doctor Says More Chemo Ahead

11/5/2012

Colts Coach Chuck Pagano's leukemia is in remission. IU Health's Dr. Larry Cripe says they verified today (Monday) that he's in complete remission.

Dr. Cripe says remission means they can't detect any evidence of the cancer, but Pagano is not cured. Dr. Cripe says the coach will undergo more treatment in order to increase the likelihood that the remission lasts, which means he'd be cured.

Pagano is shooting to be back on the sidelines for the Colts final regular season home game. Dr. Cripe says Pagano should push for being back for the final home game and that he wants Pagano to be where Pagano wants to be.
