NEW: Former Providence Mayor Cianci Diagnosed with Cancer

Monday, January 27, 2014

 

Former Providence Mayor Vincent Cianci, has been diagnosed with cancer, according to a statement released on Monday. Cianci, who is now a WPRO Radio talk show host, and chief political analyst for ABC6, had been absent from airwaves for the past week.

Cianci's Statement

“I have been absent from the airwaves for the past week due to hospitalization for a recent diagnosis of cancer.  I wish to assure my friends and loyal listeners that I am receiving the most advanced quality of care from the remarkable healthcare professionals and staff at The Miriam Hospital.  I am heartened by opinions that the cancer is completely curable, and the prognosis is for a full recovery.  While I will undergo treatment over the next few months, I plan to be back behind the microphone next week.   At that time, I hope to speak to some of the legions of fellow Southern New England residents who have confronted and conquered cancer.

“Until then, I ask that members of the media respect my request for privacy.


“In all of the challenges I have encountered in my personal life, and in my career, there is an overriding life lesson that I have learned as a result of my diagnosis.  And that is to fully appreciate the competence and compassion of doctors, nurses, and supporting specialists and staff who dedicate their lives to treating and caring for those with cancer and other serious illnesses.

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to heal and recover at this time, as I look forward to what I anticipate to be a full and active schedule this summer and fall.

“However, as has been my tradition, Tuesdays remain reserved as my bowling night!

“Thank you in advance for any positive thoughts and prayers sent my way.”
