CHICAGO (CBS) — Cardinal Francis George, the retired archbishop of Chicago, said his cancer treatments have been stopped and doctors have run out of options.
“They’ve run out of tricks in the bag, if you like,” he said. “The normal treatments now have been exhausted.”
George, looking frail and moving with the help of crutches, said he’s not keeping entirely still. He says doctors are trying to manage his quality of life and that he still hears confessions most Thursdays at Holy Name Cathedral.
