Longtime Illinois Valley state representative battling cancer

Posted by wlpo on March 9, 2015

State Representative Frank Mautino has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

The Democrat says during a routine doctor’s visit in January, his doctor found a mass. After a biopsy in February, he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Mautino says his prognosis is good and he expects to make a full recovery.

He is undergoing chemotherapy and will eventually have radiation treatment and surgery. Mautino says he’s adjusted his treatment schedule so he can still represent his district in Springfield.
