O’Donnell @ CT:

It has been a rough few months for Skowron. After turning 80 in December, he collapsed at a ballpark in Arizona during spring training.

“He collapsed into my arms,” said oldest son Greg, a trucking executive in the Phoenix area. “We were leaving a spring game around the fifth inning, which was unusual for him. Then he turned down an autograph request, which I’d never seen him do before. Then he turned to me and said, ‘I don’t feel so good.’ “

The initial diagnosis was pneumonia.

Tests later found lung cancer.

Since then, Moose’s life has spun around chemotherapy and radiation sessions at Rush University Medical Center. Not to mention the ceaseless faith, nurturing and hope from wife Cookie and daughter Lynnette.

“Don’t leave out Jerry Reinsdorf and the White Sox people in all of this,” said Skowron, who has served the South Siders as a community relations representative since 1999. “Bob Grim, Ed Farmer, Steve Stone, so many … They’ve all been great.”

Best wishes to Moose.
