Weld County DA and former Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck told friends and followers on Facebook this morning that he has received a diagnosis of lymphoma and plans to begin treatment for the blood cancer this Wednesday.  From his Facebook announcement:

As, some of you have been aware I have been dealing with some health challenges. Recent tests have determined I have lymphoma. I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT IN PRAYER! It seems scary, but I am facing this challenge head on and will be going in for a biopsy tomorrow, Monday, and begin treatment on Wednesday.

Please understand that my family and I will need privacy as we adjust to these changes. I am not sure what treatment will bring, so the best way to communicate for now will be to check updates here on facebook.

Updates will be posted here as soon as they are available.

Thank you, your prayer and support are appreciated.

Please keep Ken, his wife Rep. Perry Buck, and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
