Oh my gosh! We should certainly be praying for him! As much as I dislike Ted Kennedy, I wouldn’t wish cancer on my worst enemy. It is a terrible, dehumanizing disease that took the life of my grandma and uncle and has my brother-in-law in constant pain.
Kennedy is certainly going to have a battle on his hands and what a terrible time for him since he was probably enjoying his time as king maker (I don’t think anyone can doubt that his support played a big role in Obama’s success)!

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor. Doctors for the Massachusetts Democrat say tests conducted after Kennedy suffered a seizure this weekend show a tumor in his left parietal lobe. Preliminary results from a biopsy of the brain identified the cause of the seizure as a malignant glioma, they said.
His treatment will be decided after more tests but the usual course includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy.
The 76-year-old senator has been hospitalized in Boston since Saturday, when he was airlifted from Cape Cod after a seizure at his home.
