The Revolution announced Monday that defender Kevin Alston had been diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia -- a rare but treatable form of cancer -- and as he begins a leave of absence to undergo treatment, he is drawing on messages from well-wishers for support.

Fans wishing to send him a message directly can do so by emailing GetWellKevinAlston@gmail.com, or they can use the hashtag #GetWellKA when posting via Twitter. The 24-year-old left back is personally checking both outlets constantly, and already he's received a number of notes -- including one from another Boston athlete who returned to the field after beating cancer, which is what Alston plans to do himself.
