Tomas Kaberle could play for the Hartford Wolf Pack Friday night as the New York Rangers hope to get a closer look at the free agent defenceman. According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Rangers must sign Kaberle to a Professional Tryout Contract before he can play in the AHL.
A father of two, Murray said the doctors told him he may have had cancer for seven-to-10 years.
“The frustrating part — and I’ve said this to several doctors since then — is, ‘How come there were no signs?’ ” Murray said.
“When you hear that you’ve had cancer for possibly up to 10 years and there were no signs ... Obviously, because of the Stage 4, it had moved through my body.”
The diagnosis has also been difficult for Murray to swallow because Farber notes this may have been prevented had he underwent a colonoscopy.
Murray sent a message to those who haven’t had one to go to their doctors.
“I didn’t have a colonoscopy, which I should have had,” he said.
“I don’t know why I didn’t. One of the comments that came back to me on a regular basis were, ‘You’re healthy, you’re from a family that hasn’t had any disease whatsoever, we can maybe wait.’
“But that’s also my fault in that I should have demanded (one) or at least asked for it, but like a lot of men do, I put it off.”
Murray then reiterated the importance of the checkup.
“A simple colonoscopy, in my case, probably would have solved the problem that I have,” he said.
