Toronto, March 4 (CINEWS): Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford has been admitted to hospital as a result of his ongoing battle with cancer.
Ford’s brother, Doug, told reporters the 46-year-old was admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital over the
“Rob is in a real fight like anyone that has been facing this terrible disease,” Doug said. “He needs a little push. Give him a call, say hello, send him an email. That’s what keeps him going, that’s what keeps our whole family going.”
Ford was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of soft-tissue cancer called pleomorphic liposarcoma in September 2014, forcing him to quit his re-election campaign.
He underwent surgery in May to have a large cancerous tumour removed from his abdomen.
But in October, doctors found two other tumors attached to his bladder.
Ford’s current condition is unclear. But reports suggest Rob Ford could possibly undergo another major operation to remove new tumors but the family is also open to alternatives to that surgery.
“We are calling all over the United States and looking at every kind of trial we can find,” said Doug. “We are talking to doctors everywhere. We have found some research happening with mice and things like that.”
Meanwhile friends and foes hope for the best.
