Ridgewood man fights cancer in the ring

THE RECORD

Temporarily spent from his daily regimen of bag work, a panting and sweaty Anthony Daniels takes off the gloves and decompresses at the lip of a boxing ring inside a Paramus gym. But the fierce opponent he has been contending with the last three years never rests.

“Most of the time, I am very sick, but I do this anyway,” said the 23-year-old Ridgewood resident, who appears in good physical shape but whose battled-hardened gaze and ashen complexion reflect those of a guy who has been through the mill. “I do it for myself. I do it for my family.”

It was bad enough when a leg injury from a car accident killed Daniels’ dreams of playing hockey in college and maybe beyond. But what could he do? He decided to start fresh, and transfer from William Paterson to Fordham University. He even toyed with the idea of eventually going to law school. Today, planning for the future isn’t quite as easy. Doctors say his life expectancy may not exceed five years.

After bouts of vertigo and intense head-to-toe itching, Daniels was diagnosed on Dec. 22, 2011, with Hodgkin’s lymphoma while he was a college sophomore. The disease is a cancer of the lymphatic system in which cells grow abnormally and eventually compromise the body’s ability to fight infection.
