VOB The personal physician for the Prime Minister David Thompson, Dr. Richard Ishmael issued a statement this morning confirming that the Prime Minister is suffering from pancreatic cancer.
Dr Ishmael said that the Prime Minister has suffered substantial weight loss due to chemotherapy treatment, caused by the fact that it was considered too dangerous to operate on him, given the size of the tumor.
The chemotherapy is aimed at reducing the size of the tumor, to create conditions for doctors to possibly carry out an operation.
