Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein announced Tuesday that he has lymphoma, but described it as “highly curable.”
The executive said that he will continue to work during his chemotherapy treatment, though he will cut down his travel schedule.
“There are many people who are dealing with cancer every day. I draw on their experiences as I begin my own,” Blankfein wrote.
Blankfein has led Goldman since 2006, when President George W. Bush tapped his predecessor, Henry Paulson, to be Treasury Secretary.
