BOSTON - Jerry Remy has finished his latest cancer treatments, the Sox announcer said in a tweet Tuesday morning.
"It started in June with surgery chemo and five weeks of radiation. It ended today," he said.
Remy thanked the staff at MGH and praised the support of fans and community members.

Remy's battle with lung cancer dates back to 2008. A portion of his lung was removed in the most recent procedure.
When Remy originally announced he was opting for surgery, his hope was to return to the booth shortly after the All-Star break in July, but he sat out the rest of the Sox 2017 season.
The Red Sox used a number of analysts while Remy has been recovering, including Dennis Eckersley, Mike Timlin, Jonny Gomes and most recently, Wade Boggs.
