Former TNA/Impact Wrestling announcer Don West announced this week that he has been diagnosed with a brain lymphoma and he will be undergoing treatment.
West works for 560 KPQ Radio in Washington but he’s been on hiatus because of the health issues. We wish him the best and hope for a full recovery.
West issued the following statement via the Newsradio 560 KPQ website:
Don West here to tell you about how disappointed I am not to be talking about the Seattle Seahawks, the Mariners, the Wenatchee Wild and everything else that we love to talk about every day on the Don West Show.
Many of you have wondered where I have been and why the show is on hiatus. So I want to share this news directly with you. I have been diagnosed with a brain lymphoma and will begin immediate treatment.
I want to thank my wife Terri for her love and support, my family and everyone that works at Cherry Creek Media and KPQ. I also want to thank the Don West Show’s incredible sponsors and my friends for all the prayers that are coming my way. I am praying the chemotherapy will help me heal faster and hopefully I’ll be back on the radio soon.
I can’t wait until this is all over and I can be back with you all again, I love you all!

Just hung up the phone with him and he’s in great spirits and ready to take on this challenge! #PrayerCover
