ORONO, Maine — Tests on Maine coach Shawn Walsh indicate that the tumors under his breastplate remain despite two rounds of immunotherapy treatments. The tests include a Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) scan and a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan.
“We want to be as aggressive as possible in treating these tumors,” said Walsh. “We are exploring different treatment options to eliminate these tumors. No definitive path has been set yet. As soon as we have chosen a treatment option, I will make that information public.
“I feel strong and have been able to maintain my normal work schedule. My doctors and I are optimistic about the treatment options now available.”
In a Maine athletic department press release Walsh added a request that members of the media refrain from questions regarding his health to himself, his family or Maine players.
“[I] would like to keep the focus at this time on our team and our program,” he said.
