Whittier mayor has breast cancer

Cathy Warner, who is 63, announced her diagnosis at Tuesday's meeting of the Whittier City Council. "It's a responsibility as elected folks to make sure that our constituents know that we have the ability to carry on the public's business," Warner said. "I expect to be able to fulfill my responsibilities." She has carcinoma ductus in situ, considered the least dangerous type of breast cancer, and it was detected via mammogram, the Whittier Daily News says.
