Goldman Sachs CEO diagnosed with 'highly curable' form of lymphoma

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein announced Tuesday that he was diagnosed with a "highly curable" form of lymphoma. He will undergo chemotherapy treatments over the next few months in New York.

"There are many people who are dealing with cancer every day. I draw on their experiences as I begin my own. I have a lot of energy and I'm anxious to begin the treatment," Blankfein said in a memo to his staff.

Blankfein added that he plans to work "substantially" during the course of his treatment.
