Senator Kennedy In Surgery

This morning you may have heard that Senator Ted Kennedy is in surgery at Duke University Medical Center for the brain tumor he was diagnosed with in April.

Following today's treatment and a few days of recovery the Senator will begin chemotherapy and other aspects of his treatment later this month. My family has been touched by cancer several times over the years and I am a cancer survivor myself, and I am not alone — sometimes it seems like everyone I know knows someone that is suffering from cancer.

So I sincerely hope today goes well for him and his family, as I do for anyone that has to deal with something as destructive, sinister, and seemingly random as cancer.
