Ted Kennedy has Brain Cancer
Posted by Ryan on May 20, 2008
Doctors have identified “a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe” as the cause of Senator Kennedy’s seizure over the weekend. This kind of cancer affects roughly 9000 Americans per year and early diagnosis and a non-aggressive type can lead to about five more years.
But it’ll be a tough slog. Kennedy’s cancer is inoperable and will require chemo and other harsh treatments. To reiterate a previous post: despite our political beliefs, we here nonetheless hope that Kennedy can recover, even though the prognosis is very dark.
