SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR THOMAS MCGAUGHEY BATTLING CANCER…
New York Giants Special Teams Coordinator Thomas McGaughey revealed on Thursday that he is battling intestinal and lymphatic cancer.

“This past offseason, they found a growth in my bowel duct,” said McGaughey. “In that growth was cancer. They removed it. I had a very extensive procedure, called a whipple procedure. During the whipple, they found a cancer in one of my lymph nodes. I’ve been doing chemotherapy for about the last two months. I’m going on my fifth treatment, and it’s going good…I have a couple more treatments left. It is what it is…I had a scan, it was in Hackensack, three weeks ago. It was fine.”
