Kennedy Has Brain Tumor
Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital said today that Sen. Edward Kennedy's recent seizure was caused by a malignant brain tumor. Although it's not clear from the statement what stage the tumor is at, information from the National Cancer Institute indicates that the prognosis for this type of brain cancer - - the most common type - - is poor.
Kennedy counts among his friends a diverse group in both parties. One close friend is Orrin Hatch, a conservative Senator from Utah. Well wishes from across the political spectrum have been streaming in to the Kennedy family, as do ours.
