KHOU Sports Sports Director Bob Allen is taking an extended leave from the station to battle cancer.

Allen has shared that he has been diagnosed with cancer. The cancer is a form of T-Cell Lymphoma and he is very encouraged about his chances for recovery. 

“I’m ready for this—and I’ll beat it,” Bob says, adding that he appreciates the support and kind words coming his way.

The station says that Allen will keep viewers posted on his progress and KHOU 11 will make sure all the people who know him, trust him and care about him have the latest word on how he’s doing.

“Bob is a fighter—he’s never backed away from a cause or an effort he believes in,” says KHOU 11 Executive News Director Philip Bruce. “Now his cause is beating cancer. And my money’s on him.”
