Former Senator Harry Reid Underwent Surgery for Pancreatic Cancer

Reid is recovering after quietly undergoing surgery Monday.

On the Senate floor, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he had spoken with Reid's family.

Reid is out of surgery and in good spirits, his family went on to say, and he will now undergo chemotherapy as the next step in his treatment.

Mr. Reid was first elected to the Senate in 1986 and became the Democratic leader in 2005.

According to Reid's family, doctors discovered the tumor in his pancreas during a routine screening and they are confident that he will recover well after the surgery.

The surgery was done at Johns Hopkins' specialized pancreatic cancer clinic. He suffered an accident in 2015 that left him blind in one eye. "We are all praying for dear Harry's speedy recovery". Senator Catherine Cortez Masto says "Senator Reid is no stranger to a fight".

Instead, Reid has asked for donations to be made to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Immigration Law Clinic. He beat his opponents in the boxing ring, took on the mob in Nevada, and moved bills in the Senate that no one believed could be done. "He'll beat cancer too".

Reid, 78, is now co-chair of the MGM Resorts International Public Policy Institute, along with former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). "Harry is a fighter - literally and figuratively - I know he is going to approach his recovery with the same energy and tenacity and resolve that defined his public life".
