Flyers Chairman Ed Snider Treated for Cancer

“He is happy and healthy,” spokesman says.

USA Today reports that Flyers Chairman Ed Snider “recently completed treatment for a non-life-threatening form of cancer and has continued to work through the process.”

“He is happy and healthy,” said Comcast-Spectacor spokesman Ike Richman.

Snider’s involvement with the team and Comcast-Spectacor, which he first founded as Spectacor in 1974, was never compromised by either the condition or the treatment.

The specific form of cancer was not disclosed.
