Fmr. Boston Mayor Tom Menino Diagnosed with Cancer

menino (Boston) – Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has been diagnosed with an advanced form of cancer.

The Boston Globe reports that 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 told the newspaper, “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.

    I really never listened to the man, or his politics, but he must have been pretty darn good to remain reelected for so long.
    Best wishes Mr Menino and family.
