Former CBS Talk WBZ-A/BOSTON evening host PAUL SULLIVAN is ending his treatments for brain cancer, according to a statement from his family posted by media reporter JESSICA HESLAM on her blog at the BOSTON HERALD's website. SULLIVAN left WBZ in JUNE and has been battling cancer for the past three years.
The statement reads, “We all want you to know how much PAUL has appreciated the cards and calls during the last few months since giving his evening talk show on WBZ Radio. They have been very comforting during these summer months. We also want to express how grateful we are to the terrific medical team at MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL for their amazing care and treatment of PAUL during the past 33 months.
"At this point we have decided to end medical treatments for PAUL’s cancer and focus on his comfort and quality of life. He will be in the hospital for the foreseeable future receiving hospice care. We feel he will be most comfortable here at SAINT'S MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER in LOWELL, the city where he spent so much of his life. PAUL is surrounded by his family and friends and would like everyone to know how important all the thoughts and prayers have been to him."
