Columnist Robert Novak Hospitalized; Diagnosed With Brain Tumor
Sad news about yet another Catholic journalist. Columnist Robert Novak, a Catholic convert, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor:
Robert Novak was admitted yesterday to a Boston hospital where he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In a written statement given to his publisher, Novak said:My Comments:
“On Sunday, July 27, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I have been admitted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where doctors will soon begin appropriate treatment.
“I will be suspending my journalistic work for an indefinite but, God willing, not too lengthy period.”
Prayers for a speedy recovery. We've already lost 2 of my favorite Catholic journalists this year; I don't want to see it happen to a 3rd.
Here's more from Novak's employer, The Chicago Sun-Times.
