Ex-mayor Ford's cancerous tumor has shrunk in half


 The brother of Rob Ford says the cancerous tumor the former Toronto mayor has been getting treatment for has shrunk in half.

   Doug Ford said Tuesday the tumor -- which doctors had initially said was 12 centimeters (4.7 inches) by 12 centimeters in size -- is now down to 6 centimeters (2.4 inches) by 6 centimeters.

   Doug Ford says his brother will be finishing a fifth round of chemotherapy soon and will also get radiation treatment.

   Ford was diagnosed with a rare form of abdominal cancer in September and dropped his bid for mayoral re-election shortly afterward. Instead, he ran for a seat on the city council and won.

   In November, Rob Ford said his tumor had not shrunk, but had not gotten larger either.
