TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Our thoughts are with Mayor Rob Ford and his family at this difficult time. We know how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be and we hope that the mayor and his family have the support they need to cope with the stress that patients and families experience.

We want the Ford family to know they can reach out to us for information and support, as all cancer patients and their families can. We wish Rob Ford a successful treatment and full recovery. We wish Rob Ford a successful treatment and full recovery.
