CHICAGO - Cardinal Francis George has been given a clean bill of health — just as he gets set to head to Rome to help select a new pope. After a chemotherapy regimen starting last November, recent tests show no cancer cells in his kidney.
“I don’t want to overstate [my improving health] because these things have a tendency to fool you, but for the moment I’m very grateful,” said George about tests conducted this week that determined there weren’t any cancer cells present in his body.
This is the second time the Cardinal has beaten back cancer. More HERE.
