Ailing leader

Kennedy returns to Hyannis Port in June 2008 after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor. In May 2008, he was diagnosed with a malignant glioma, one of the most lethal forms of brain cancer, on the left side of his brain. Doctors cut out the tumor on June 2, and Kennedy was expected to undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatment. "I feel like a million bucks. I think I will do that again tomorrow," he told his wife after the surgery.
