Governor Wolf Announces Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Governor Tom Wolf announced Wednesday that he has been diagnosed with a treatable form of prostate cancer. First Lady Frances Wolf joined the governor during a 10-minute morning press conference.

Governor Wolf says his treatment will begin in the coming weeks and aside from taking a few days off at the onset, he’s planning to continue working and he says the medical condition will not hinder his abilities as governor. He hopes the public discussion of the condition will remind people of the importance of regular medical checkups.
