GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- The head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, the Packers' opponent on Sunday, is currently undergoing treatment for leukemia. It's a potentially life-threatening form of cancer.
Steve Fellows, of Green Bay, survived a very similar experience and when he heard about Coach Scott Pagano's diagnosis it brought back a lot of memories.
"I felt really sorry for the guy," Fellows said. "I know we're playing them, but I still feel sorry for the guy. I know what he's going to be going through. I went through lots and lots of treatments and he's going to be going through lots and lots of difficult times."
In Fellows case, three-and-a-half years of chemotherapy. As of last spring, he has not needed treatment.
Doctors say Coach Pagano's leukemia is fast-acting and requires urgent treatment, but that he could be in remission after four weeks, if he's lucky.
