Bill Clark  CQPHO

Yesterday U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, announced that she has kidney cancer. She says she has a favorable prognosis from her doctor in Washington. Shortly after, she was diagnosed with kidney cancer which is present in her seventh rib.

Hirono says she will continue to work during her treatment.

In addition to having her kidney removed, she is also scheduled to have the lesion on her rib removed in June through a noninvasive, outpatient procedure that involves intensive radiation.

"At the conclusion of this treatment, there will be no identifiable disease left untreated", Hirono, the first-term senator from Hawaii, said in the statement.

Hirono says she will continue to work during her cancer treatment and she plans to run for re-election in 2018.

"I face this fight with the same determination I've fought for the people of Hawai'i. And I never quit, especially when things get tough", Hirono said in her statement.
