I have been going through a series of medical tests this spring and my leukemia (hairy cell) has returned. It is going to involve chemotherapy over the immediate future.

I have been through many fights before, and I plan to overcome this one too. I am going to take some time off for treatment and continue my plans where I left off.

I would like to ask you for patience and understanding at this time as events have to be cancelled or rescheduled for the next month or two. My staff and I stand ready to help with any issues in the 43rd District.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve.

  • Sen. Tom Brewer, Legislative District 43.

Editor’s note: Hairy cell leukemia makes up approximately 2% of all leukemias, with fewer than 2,000 new cases diagnosed annually in North America and Western Europe combined. — Wikipedia
