GULFPORT, Miss. - Deanna Favre, the wife of Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Deanna Favre was recently released from Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York after undergoing a lumpectomy, Bonita Favre, Deanna's mother-in-law, told The Sun Herald on Monday.

Deanna Farve will undergo chemotherapy treatments which could last up to five months and is expected to make a full recovery, Bonita Favre said.

Favre was told about the cancer Oct. 14 and left practice to be with his family for a day prior to the Detroit Lions game on Oct. 17.

"Brett was relieved to learn that the situation is not as bad as it could have been," Deanna's brother-in-law, Scott Favre said. "We think that they got (all of the cancer) out."

It has been a difficult year for the Favre family. In December, Brett's father, Irvin, died from a heart attack. Deanna's brother, Casey Tynes, 24, was killed three weeks ago in an ATV accident on Brett Favre's land near his home in Oak Grove.

Deanna is originally from the Kiln. She and Brett married in 1997.

Deanna Favre runs the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation, which has raised more than $1 million for disadvantaged or disabled children who live in Wisconsin or Mississippi.

"The family has been through a great deal and we will get through this," Bonita Favre said. "We would like to thank everyone for the prayers and support. We're a strong family and with the help of the Lord, we'll get through this."

Man, I really feel for that family ... makes you really wonder this time if Brett's considering hanging it up after season's end.

I doubt that this will make a difference. He recognizes that he still has fun, and that you can't be doing this later in life (it's now or never, so to speak).

I don't think that this would be viewed as insensitive, in that he's shown that he'll play football shortly after his father's death. The family has said that this is to be expected, so why not now?

Then again, I could just be in serious denial, hoping to avoid a Bears-like QB situation.

The main reason why I'm not ripping the ACC is that I'm starting to think that Va. Tech might be scary. As for Boston College: They'll still lose at Florida State and Miami and at home to Va.
