Doctors find new tumor in Nunnelee

Doctors have found a new tumor in U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee and told him no further medical treatment is possible, a spokesman for the Mississippi congressman said Friday.

“After seven months of bravely fighting brain cancer and a stroke, Congressman Alan Nunnelee was informed last Friday that a new tumor has developed and no further medical treatment is possible. On Monday of this week, Alan came home and is resting comfortably with family,” Morgan Baldwin, a campaign consultant who has worked for Nunnelee, said in a prepared statement Friday.

“The family continues to ask for your prayers and requests privacy out of respect for Congressman Nunnelee,” Baldwin said.
