The OC Register is reporting that former St. Margaret's football coach Harry Welch has prostrate cancer:
From the story:
Santa Margarita football coach Harry Welch has prostate cancer and will undergo surgery for it during the coming football season.
Welch, 65, said his doctor, after initial exams, suggested a biopsy was needed and the biopsy revealed the cancer. A meeting with a specialist Tuesday will inform Welch of more details on the surgery and post-surgery treatment.
Welch revealed his diagnosis to the Register on Sunday night on the condition that it not be made public until he told his team this afternoon.
"The doctor said if we do the surgery now, I have a 90 percent chance of beating it," Welch said. "So we're probably looking at dealing with this real soon."
Welch said he was committed to continue coaching this season, within reason.
