Grim Diagnosis for Senate Leader (Corrected)

Senate Minority Leader Don Caruth is again battling brain cancer, his office told The Associated Press and others.

The Mercer County Republican was treated for the illness in 2008 (corrected from 2004), and is "staying at home while he seeks medical treatment for the condition," the article said.

The 59-year-old lawyer "offers his thanks to people who have expressed concern about him, but asks for privacy as he’s treated for the illness," AP reported.

MetroNews has a report, and has posted the statement.

The Register-Herald of Beckley also has an article.
