Fiancee of late ESPN reporter Edward Aschoff shares new details about his death

ESPN reporter Edward Aschoff passed away on Christmas Eve after battling what doctors initially thought was pneumonia, but it turns out that was not the only illness he had at the time of his death.

On Wednesday, Aschoff’s fiancee Katy Berteau wrote a series of tweets on Edward’s account to provide more information about his sudden passing. Berteau said doctors received the final results from a biopsy that was taken of Aschoff’s lungs, and the tests showed the 34-year-old had Stage 4 non-Hodgkins’ lymphoma in his lungs. Doctors told Berteau that form of cancer is difficult to detect until it is very advanced.

Berteau says she takes comfort knowing Aschoff did not have to suffer through a long disease when his death was “inevitable.” She also said she provided the update so people could know that “something way bigger than pneumonia took him down.”

Aschoff began working with ESPN as an SEC reporter in 2011. He graduated from the University of Florida in 2008 and seemed to be ascending with the network at the time he died.
