Weld County DA Buck: ‘I Am In Remission’
GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – The district attorney in Weld County says he’s cancer free after going through chemotherapy to treat lymphoma.
Ken Buck, a Republican who has been DA since 2004 and who recently ran for U.S. Senate, shared the following good news on his Facebook page late Monday night:
Praise the Lord! I went to my doctor today and after blood tests, a CT scan and a PET scan the consensus from the Radiologist and Oncologist is that I am in remission. After only 3 chemo cycles, there is no detectable cancer in my body. I feel so blessed to have so many friends who have prayed, prepared meals, sent cards, called, emailed and expressed love and support in so many positive ways. Perry and I want to thank you for allowing us to share this time together and grow in our marriage, faith and love. It has been a time for the Buck family to reflect and we are all so much more appreciative of the blessings we enjoy. Our daughter Kaitlin graduated early from college and put her life on hold since January to support her Papa and we could not have asked for a greater gift than her loving devotion. I have a few more chemo sessions to make sure there is no cancer lingering in the blood system and then I will be fighting again with my entire heart, body and soul. Thank you so much for your prayers and overwhelming support.
Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer.
