Congressional Candidate Announces Battle with Cancer

Frederick, MD (KK) – The Democratic nominee for Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District announced Monday he is being treated for cancer.

David Trone issued a statement saying doctors found a tumor in his urinary tract and he has undergone chemotherapy at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. Trone says the tumor has been substantially reduced. He now has to have his kidney removed, but is expected to fully recover.

Doctors say Trone may miss a few days of campaigning, but he plans on being “fully engaged” after recovering.
