Eau Claire Anchor Keith Edwards Diagnosed with Lymphoma

By Kevin Eck 

Longtime Eau Claire, Wisc., anchor Keith Edwards has announced that he has been diagnosed with Lymphoma.

“Lymphoma, a type of cancer, was recently found in my thyroid gland. I underwent surgery. The next step is chemotherapy, which will start in early November,” Edwards told viewers of the ABC station WQOW. “One of the many side effects of chemo is, of course, going bald — so I just wanted to give you advance notice of an upcoming big change in my appearance.”

“Otherwise my prognosis is good, I have great doctors, and I have great support from my family, friends and my coworkers. I thank everyone for their support,” he added.


Eu Claire’s NBC affiliate WEAU wished him well, by saying “13 News team wants Keith to know we are thinking of him and wish him all the best on this journey.”
