US Rep. Alan Nunnelee sent home after new tumor discoveredPosted by J Craig on January 30, 2015
TUPELO, Miss. — U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee is now resting at home after doctors found a new tumor and informed him that no further medical treatment was 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.
Nunnelee had a stroke back in June while surgeons were removing a brain tumor. He is 56 years old and resides in Tupelo, Miss. with his family.
The U.S. Representative was hospitalized in December for treatment of a bleeding problem in his left leg. He was unable to travel to Washington to be sworn in to his third two-year term as he was hospitalized at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. A federal judge was authorized to administer his oath of office.
In 2010, Nunnelee unseated Democrat Travis Childers for north Mississippi’s 1st District seat.
Before he was elected to Congress, Nunnelee served 15 years in the Mississippi Senate and was chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
