Goldman Sachs CEO and Chairman Lloyd Blankfein has a form of lymphoma but says it is “highly curable.”
Blankfein wrote on the firm’s website Tuesday that he underwent a series of tests after not feeling well for several weeks.
The executive said he’ll receive chemotherapy in New York over the next several months. He will be reducing his travel, but expects to be able to “work substantially as normal.”
“My doctors’ and my own expectation is that I will be cured,” Blankfein said.
