Remy, 64, has been broadcasting Red Sox games since 1988, and NESN announced that Remy plans to be in the broadcast booth again this season, per Finn.
He was first diagnosed in 2008 and had a cancerous area removed from his lung. He had a relapse in 2013 and had surgery to remove a cancerous area from a different part of his lung but was able to continue broadcasting and didn't miss any time while recovering from surgery.
In January, he signed a multiyear extension with NESN.
"I’m very excited and pleased to be able to continue doing the job that I love, now heading into my 30th year and beyond with NESN," he said in a statement at the time. "I want to thank NESN and the Red Sox for all their support in the past and going forward."
