Jon Lester walked into Boston's clubhouse, yanked off his brown cowboy boots and slipped on a pair of shower shoes. Seconds later, he shuffled off to join a pitcher's meeting before resuming his major league career. Cancer didn't defeat the 23-year-old, and now it was time to see whether he could help the Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians. Lester, whose rookie season ended prematurely when he was diagnosed with a treatable form of lymphoma nearly 1 year ago, returned to the mound last night to pitch the opener of a four-game series at Cleveland's Jacobs Field.

Maybe there was something on the ground when Mark "Pete" Peterson waded through rice paddies in Vietnam in his first year as a U.S. Marine. Or in the air, across Asia and South America, where he piloted helicopters for most of his 22 years of service. Or maybe there was nothing and he got sick for no apparent reason. It began as a sore throat, like the ones before a seasonal head cold. It was mid-August 2012. "After a week, the runny nose and mucus buildup never showed up," recalls the West Grove resident, who is 65. He went to see his family practitioner, who prescribed a 10-day course of antibiotics.

One dark afternoon in late January, Jane Withstandley threw her arms around her horse, Calvin, buried her face in his sleek, muscular neck and apologized for the random pain of the universe. "I'm sorry," she said. "You don't deserve this. " She fed him some of his favorite treats, wintergreen Life Savers and "stud muffins" - an equine delicacy made of grains and molasses, then she slumped into a pile of straw in the corner of his stall and cried. An hour before, she had learned that Calvin, her stunning 10-year-old thoroughbred, had cancer.

Dermatologist Gil Yosipovitch believes itch should be studied and treated as a disease in itself, not just a symptom of disease. That's why he founded the International Society for the Study of Itch in 2005. And that's partly why he left North Carolina's Wake Forest University six months ago to create the Itch Center at Temple University School of Medicine. "We're behind our colleagues in the field of pain," said Yosipovitch, who is also the new chair of Temple's dermatology department.

The text message from Jeremy Maclin told David Culley that something was very wrong. "The text said, 'Coach, I'm very concerned about my health.' Period. Nothing else was there," recalled Culley, the Eagles wide receivers coach. "Although you can't feel a text, I felt just from what he said to me, there's something seriously wrong with him. " The confidence Culley knew so well was missing. By the time Maclin sent that message, he was well into a harrowing summer that involved no fewer than six tests for cancer, hours spent with needles inserted into his chest and back, and a frustrating lack of answers.
