Long-time Queens Assembly Member Catherine Nolan has disclosed that she is recovering from cancer surgery.
Nolan, who has represented the 37th Assembly District since 1985, said that she has undergone surgery and is now recuperating at home.
She did not reveal what type of cancer she has – nor the extent of the cancer – but said it will require further treatment.
“I want to announce that I am home recovering from surgery and will be following it with chemotherapy,” Nolan said in a statement Thursday.
Nolan, whose district covers Long Island City, Sunnyside, Ridgewood and parts of Astoria, said that her illness has not affected her work and she will continue to serve her constituents.
“I have been able to fully participate and vote in the Assembly’s legislative session via zoom,” she said, adding that issues like paid family leave, workers’ rights, education and health care are at the front of her agenda.
“I am fortunate to have a great medical team, a loving family, and a very dedicated staff,” Nolan said.
