Texas G Andrew Jones provides positive update on battle with leukemia

On Jan. 10, it was publicly announced that Texas Longhorns sophomore guard Andrew Jones was diagnosed with leukemia and undergoing treatment.

In recent weeks, Jones has been active on social media, providing brief and often visual updates of his progress in his battle with cancer.

On Feb. 26, Jones and his family provided an official update just days after the Irving (Texas) native was released from the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, per a release from the school.

“I was released from MD Anderson Cancer Center on Saturday night (Feb. 24) around 5 p.m. and have started receiving treatments on an outpatient basis,” Jones said. “That was a great night and a big step for me and my family.”

“My doctors tell me I am continuing to show improvement, and that is really encouraging.”

“My family and I will remain in Houston for this next stage of my recovery,” Jones added. “As we’ve said before, I’m really thankful for all the love and support that has been shown to me and to my family. It has truly been overwhelming. I hope you’ll continue to keep me in your daily thoughts and prayers. Together, we WILL win this fight.”

This story will be updated.
