Will County Executive to begin radiation treatments
Will County Executive Larry Walsh has announced he will begin radiation therapy to further treat his diagnosis of prostate cancer. His treatment regime is set to begin later this month and will last approximately eight weeks.
“We knew radiation therapy was a possibility following surgery and although I feel great, my doctor recommends this course of action to be sure I am ultimately cancer-free,” said Walsh.
On Sept. 25, Walsh had surgery to remove his prostate after his doctors detected cancerous cells. At that time, the physicians were confident all the malignant tissue was removed and only a short series of radiation therapy would be necessary.
“I am confident in my doctor and his recommendations,” Walsh said. “I am also very appreciative of all the prayers and well wishes throughout this process.”
