FORMER MAYOR SAYS HE WILL BEAT CANCER AND BE BACK SOON

Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has been diagnosed with an advanced form of cancer.

 

Doctors found ``an advanced cancer of unknown origin'' that had metastasized. They were unable to find its source. The newspaper says the cancer was discovered in February by Menino's primary physician.

 

The 71-year-old Menino telling reporters at a booksigning in Dorchester that ``we'll get through it.''

 

Menino served as Boston mayor for more than 20 years, longer than anyone else. He retired from the job a year ago after health problems forced him to decline to run for a sixth term.
