Seahawks, Blazers owner Paul Allen’s cancer has returned

Microsoft co-founder and pro sports mogul Paul Allen will continue his battle with cancer. 

The owner of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks and NBA's Portland Trail Blazers announced Monday on his personal website and on Twitter the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that first surfaced in 2009 has returned.

Allen, 65, said he's optimistic the advances in cancer treatment in the nine years since he was originally diagnosed will help him as doctors plan their aggressive treatment of the disease. 

After becoming a billionaire when Microsoft went public, Allen purchased the Trail Blazers in 1998 and the Seahawks in 1996, in addition to his other business ventures.
