RASKIN UPDATES CANCER TREATMENTS

Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin is still hopeful after his cancer diagnosis.  Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, Raskin said he and his doctors are “very optimistic the chemo is going to get the cancer,” adding he is “hanging tough.”  He’s undergoing treatment after revealing last month he has lymphoma.  At the time, Raskin said the prognosis for most people in his situation is excellent after four months of treatment.
