Mich. Rep. Dave Camp Says He's Cancer-free

Tuesday, 18 Dec 2012 03:36 PM

A Michigan congressman who chairs a tax committee says doctors have declared him cancer-free following chemotherapy treatments.

U.S. Rep. Dave Camp announced last summer that he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. On Tuesday, the Midland Republican said in a statement that he is free of cancer.

The 59-year-old chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says he's "extremely thankful for the excellent treatment." He says he'll have routine medical checks in the months ahead.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a cancer that begins in the cells of the immune system. Camp says he had large B-cell lymphoma. B-cells are a type of white blood cell that helps fight infections.

He has served in Congress since 1991.
