This is not good news.

WASHINGTON — White House Press Secretary Tony Snow will undergo chemotherapy treatment after doctors found a cancerous growth in his lower abdomen, the White House announced Tuesday.

The cancer, originally in his colon, has spread to his liver, said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino. Snow spoke to President Bush Tuesday morning, who told Snow he and first lady Laura Bush are praying for him.

Please pray for Tony Snow and his family. They will need it.
