Claude Béchard, 40, Agriculture Minister for Quebec is in hospital fighting pancreatic cancer for a second time following the discover of a benign growth in his intestines during his hernia surgery performed last week.
They are currently contemplating if radiation therapy or chemotherapy will be needed but Béchard is reportedly in ”good spirit” though he will stay in hospital for 10 days.
On Wednesday, Premier Jean Charest visited Béchard expressing that “his morale as usual is great” and that “[he is] a man of very strong character and he is going to fight to become healthy. He has indicated to me that he is going to want to return to work, which is good news.”
What a trooper! Resilent, unfazed and ready to move on.
