Mike Lowell wrote a book called Deep Drive: A Long Journey to Finding the Champion Within, was published on May 6, 2008.
Mike Lowell was diagnosed with testicular cancer, causing him to miss nearly two months of the 1999 season while he underwent treatment for the disease.
What happened with Mike's cancer, is it cured now? Does he still have cancer?

Mike Lowell was traded to the Florida Marlins on February 1, 1999. While waiting for spring training, he discovered that he had testicular cancer and underwent surgery on February 21 returning to the lineup on May 29.
He's safe from the cancer now.

Mike Lowell's book is great. Mikey has such a great story and i'm happy that he is sharing it with the Sox fans. I have so much more respect for him after reading this book i never knew all of the struggles that he had to overcome. I mainly just knew about the testicular cancer.
