Hopefully, Portland Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen is able to beat cancer again.

Back in 2009 he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and on Monday he announced that it had returned.

He said he and his doctors are optimistic that the new treatments developed to fight the disease since 2009 will help him best the disease again.

Allen, also the owner of the Seattle Seahawks, said he will remain active in all his businesses through the treatment process.

Our thoughts are with him and we are all hoping for the best.
