Rob Ford is back in hospital as he continues his battle with a rare form of cancer.
Ford’s brother, Doug, confirmed Wednesday that he was admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital five days ago.
“Rob is in a real fight like anyone that has been facing this terrible disease,” Ford’s brother told CP24. “He needs a little push. Give him a call, say hello, send him an email. That’s what keeps him going, that’s what keeps our whole family going.”
Back in September 2014, doctors found a tumour in Ford’s abdomen, which led to a major surgery to remove it in May. However, in October, Ford discovered he had two cancerous tumours on his bladder and had to start another round of chemotherapy.
Doug Ford says he’s uncertain how long his brother will be in hospital this time.
Ford suffers from a soft tissue cancer called pleomorphic liposarcoma.
