“This weekend has been a crazy one to say the least,” he posted to Instagram. “Some of you may already know, but Friday I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and will begin chemotherapy sometime this week.

“While this journey will not be easy,” Alderson continued, “I know that together with all of my family and friends, we will beat this! Just a bump in the road on this crazy ride we call life! I will keep all of you updated as we go along.”
