MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who was diagnosed last month with a small spot of cancer on a lung, said Friday she has successfully finished outpatient radiation treatments.
Ivey’s office issued a statement saying she and her doctor expect a full recovery based on the early stage of cancer that was detected and the type of treatment it required.
The 74-year-old Republican announced last month that doctors had found a small, isolated spot of cancer in her lung. Ivey hasn’t disclosed her exact diagnosis or additional details about the illness.
Ivey’s statement said her longtime doctor discovered the cancer early during a routine exam.
