MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman says he is being treated for stage 4 lung cancer.
The 68-year-old Republican discussed his condition Tuesday in a posting on Facebook.
The announcement comes about two and a half years after he was diagnosed with throat and neck cancer. Coleman underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation after his initial diagnosis. He had eventually been pronounced cancer-free.
Coleman says he has never felt in better shape and his “hopes and prayers are for a very long time.”
