"I have no comment, other than to say I’m doing good. That’s all I can say."

"But nobody believes me because there hasn’t been any information out there. But, trust me, I’m doing good."

I want to believe he's doing good, but I know just how serious this particular form of cancer can be and Gwynn has been fighting it off for quite some time.

Gwynn says that he honestly doesn't know when or if he'll be back before the SDSU regular season ends in 4 weeks.  He's missed the last 19 games in order to regain his strength.

"I’d like to be there," Gwynn said. "The team’s playing too well this year to not be a part of this. I would like to be a part of it. I just don’t know. We’ll see."

Gwynn's absence has been  by and large kept quiet because SDSU has instructed all coaches and players to not to speak about his health, instead they have referred all questions to Gwynn.
