Snow had his colon removed in 2005 and underwent six months of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with colon cancer. On March 26, he underwent surgery to remove a growth in his abdominal area, and doctors determined that cancer had metastasized, or spread, to the liver.
“Now I know the first reaction of people when they hear the word cancer is ‘uh-oh,’ but we live in kind of a different medical situation than we used to,” Snow said. He will start chemotherapy Friday, using agents that he said weren’t widely available during his last bout with cancer.
“The design is to throw it into remission and transform it into a chronic disease,” Snow said. “If cancer is merely a nuisance for a long period of time, that’s fine with me.”
Tony Snow — politics aside, he does have a way of providing perspective.
“If cancer is merely a nuisance for a long period of time, that’s fine with me.”
Do it, Tony!
And friends, keep those prayers comin.
