How Curable Is Lloyd Blankfein's Lymphoma?

Updated on

As Lloyd Blankfein embarks on a battle with lymphoma, investors and colleagues are taking comfort in his resilience, the recent example of Jamie Dimon and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s roster of veteran leaders.

Blankfein, Goldman Sachs’s chief executive officer, said in a statement Tuesday that he has a “highly curable” form of lymphoma and will undergo chemotherapy in New York over the next several months.
