After winning a battle against cancer once already, State Senator James Seward yesterday (November 6) announced that his 2016 diagnosis is in recurrence.
In a statement, Seward said his physicians have recommended he undergo a series of treatments over the next several weeks, which will force him to temporarily pause his senatorial duties during recovery.
However, Seward indicated his offices will remain open and that he’s already looking forward to getting back to work.
See the full statement below:
“I have recently been advised by my physicians that the cancer I first experienced in 2016 has recurred.
My physicians have recommended a series of treatments over the next several weeks that will limit my availability and curtail my normal, active district schedule.
While I will be taking some time to concentrate on getting better, my offices will remain open and my capable staff will continue to assist constituents with their state-related needs.
I look forward to completion of my treatment protocol and returning shortly to serve the good people of the 51st Senatorial District as we anticipate the start of the new legislative session.”
-Sen. James Seward (R/C/I – Oneonta)
