Local lawmaker recovering from cancer surgery

Posted:

Colfax (WQOW) - A local lawmaker is on the mend after undergoing surgery for a cancerous tumor.

Assemblyman Tom Larson of Colfax says doctors removed the tumor and one of his kidneys in early June. He says while the tumor was cancerous, doctors say they got it all and he's been given a clean bill of health.

Larson says he's disappointed he did not get to take part in the debate and vote on the state budget. He says he's now ready to get back to work and plans to head to back to Madison early next week.
