Popular Toronto Mayor Ford Diagnosed With “rare” Cancer?

Living in Toronto all last year I heard the name “Rob Ford”  a lot.. Then I spoke to a couple and asked their opinions. I was just sitting there while friends discussed their thoughts.. it got heated but it was funny! Everyone wants a good Mayor. The right man to run the job.

Rob Ford has had an interesting campaign and now onto Doug Ford, his younger brother on the mayoral ballot last week, just days after the tumour was first discovered.

“Rob has always been so strong for all of us and now I ask us all to be strong for him. Your kind words and well wishes mean everything to him right now. Rob will beat this,” Ford said.

Cohen said they are “optimistic” about treating this particular type of cancer — pleomorphic liposarcoma — and that it is the most “sensitive” to chemotherapy.

In the next 48 hours, Ford will begin two rounds of chemotherapy, each to last three days followed by 18 days of a “washout” period. After doctors examine the tumour again, they will decide whether more chemotherapy is needed or if surgery is required, Cohen said.

Sad news for Ford’s family and hope treatment does go well.
