Tony Snow’s Cancer Returns

Tony Snow, a cancer survivor, is going to need our prayers:

Doctors have removed a small, malignant growth from presidential spokesman Tony Snow’s abdomen, but they determined the cancer had spread to his liver, the White House said Tuesday.

Snow, 51, told reporters during a Friday briefing that he was having the growth removed but shrugged it off as a precautionary measure.

“We have found a small growth in my lower abdomen. Blood tests are negative [for cancer]. PET scans are negative,” he said. “But out of an aggressive sense of caution, I’m going to go in for surgery on Monday and have it removed.”

Snow is probably the most prolific White House press secretary, having already had a strong following before taking the job. That was the result of his intelligence and likable nature. We should all remember him and his family in our prayers.
