They’ve been in the public eye for years, covering your stories and sharing some of theirs.

When Mark Dailey and Cynthia Mulligan were diagnosed with cancer, it was no different.

Dailey has long battled prostate cancer, raising funds and awareness about the disease. He has been cancer-free for six years.

On Wednesday, he revealed that he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer.

“I’d been having symptoms – weight loss, which the viewers noticed – fatigue, night sweats. After weeks of tests, they found a tumour on my left kidney,” Dailey said on CityNews at Six.

“It’s hard to detect unless you have a CT scan,” he added.

Dailey is planning to have surgery in a few weeks – as well as a vacation.

Mulligan, meanwhile, has been blogging steadily during her chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.

She had her final treatment (her sixth) last month and will be going for surgery in the next two to four weeks.

“I’ll admit I’m nervous, scared, and wish this would all just go away,” Mulligan wrote on her blog.

On Friday September 10 at 7pm, Citytv spent one hour looking at the struggles and triumphs of the ongoing battle with cancer in our special presentation Citytv Fights Cancer. The show was in support of The Canadian Cancer Society and was followed by the Stand Up To Cancer telethon.

Citytv Fights Cancer will be available on demand on Monday, September 13.
