Mike Gregoire undergoes cancer surgery

OLYMPIA — Mike Gregoire, husband of Washington's two term governor, is recovering from cancer surgery after colon cancer was discovered during a routine screening.

Gov. Gregoire said in a statement her husband, who is 66, is still in the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.

Cancer was discovered during a colonoscopy and he was immediately scheduled for surgery, the governor said in her statement. “Prior to the screening, Mike showed no symptoms and was never in pain,” she added.

The governor was diagnosed with breast cancer about eight years ago, also from routine screening, and made a full recovery.
