Davies, 30, hasn’t played since April 27, but is traveling to Florida for New England’s game at Orlando City on Sunday (7:30 pm ET; MLS LIVE).
FOX aired a full feature on Davies’ story on Sunday (watch above), ahead of their broadcast of Sporting Kansas City’s home match against the Portland Timbers.
In their statement, the Revolution said that “it was important for Charlie to concentrate on his family and treatment during the past few weeks and the club honored his wish for privacy.”
The diagnosis is the latest in a series of hardships that Davies and his family have had to overcome. The striker was a passenger in a fatal car wreck in October 2009, suffering serious injuries that prevented him from returning to the field for more than a year.
In March, Davies’ wife Nina gave birth to twin sons Rhys and Dakota three months premature. The twins spent nearly two months in the neonatal intensive care unit at Brigham Women’s Hospital in Boston before heading home in June.
Davies was diagnosed with liposarcoma, a rare type of cancer that arises in fat cells in deep soft tissue, after the birth of his sons.
Cancer was something I never expected. But having beaten it, I'm that much stronger for it. Pumped to be back with the squad!— Charlie Davies (@CharlieDavies9) July 30, 2016
