Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced Wednesday he has treatable prostate cancer.
“Treatments will last the next several months, but they will present no impairment to my ability to perform my duties as governor,” said the 67-year-old Democrat.
“I am very thankful that my doctors caught this cancer quickly and have worked with me to plan a treatment schedule that will address my medical issues and allow me to serve the people of Pennsylvania.”
When Wolf divulged the presence of the illness, he cast a spotlight on one of the most common and treatable of cancers.
