WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Former major leaguer Bobby Bonds, the father of San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds, has lung cancer.

The Contra Costa Times reported Bonds is undergoing chemotherapy seven months after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his kidney.

The paper said Bonds was recovering well from his kidney procedure, but was diagnosed with lung cancer during the winter.

The 56-year-old Bonds played for eight teams during a 14-season career. He was with the San Francisco Giants from 1968 to 1974.

He had 332 career homers and stole 461 bases, and registered 30 homers and 30 steals in a season five times.

You would be amazed by the numbers of people who have a lung met (or know someone who has a lung met) who believe that the person who has the met has "lung cancer". Not the same thing at all. (Rarely some poor soul will come along who does have a new primary lung cancer.) I hope that he has a speedy recovery and a good response to what ever treatments he is given...
