Tony Snow Resigns, Dana Perino to Become Press Secretary

Tony Snow is due to make the announcement today that he is stepping down as Press Secretary and Dana Perino will be taking over the job on September 14th.

Snow has been battling colon cancer and has been in and out of the hospital. This had been talked about for the last couple of weeks, so it is no surprise and we wish him well in his battle.

Doctors later discovered cancer in Tony Snow's liver. He's had at least 8 Chemotherapy treatments.

President George W. Bush said in March: "It's a recurrence of the cancer that he thought that he had successfully dealt with in the past."

"His attitude is, one, that he is not going to let this whip him, and he's upbeat."

Tony Snow's mother died of colon cancer.

Snow has done a wonderful job as the public face of the White House but financial and medical considerations have been in the news for a while now.

Good luck to Dana Perino. Our thoughts will be with you Tony!!!
