Tallahassee, FL (AP) - The 5-year-old son of Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is facing an arduous treatment schedule after being diagnosed with a rare blood disorder.

In a statement released by the university Friday, Fisher said he was hopeful an optimistic approach and good medical care would yield a positive result. The second-year Florida State coach missed practice Tuesday while traveling with his youngster to an out-of-town medical appointment. Fisher asked for prayers and privacy as he and his wife, Candi, help son Ethan cope with the situation. Ethan is the youngest of the couple's two boys.

Fisher told his team Friday about the challenges his family faces over the next several months. Florida State is midway through its spring practices and just two weeks from its annual spring game.
