For the past two years or so, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's critics have made him the butt of countless jokes. His admitted drug and alcohol problems, crass speaking style and several high-profile gaffes have made him the go-to politician for ridicule. (Video via YouTube / deadmau5)
But Wednesday's news put a stop to all that.
Dr. Zane Cohen announced that Rob Ford will begin chemotherapy this week for liposarcoma — a malignant tumor that is extremely rare. He also said the tumor is about 5 inches by 5 inches in size.
CRYSTAL GOOMANSINGH ON GLOBAL NEWS: "This is very rare and we heard the doctor really kind of drive home this message that its a tumor not attached to an organ, but rather the fatty tissue cells."
This news comes only a few days after Ford announced he was dropping out of the upcoming mayoral race due to "medical issues," which many outlets reported as a tumor in his abdomen.
Ford was the recipient of an outpouring of well-wishes from local politicians — even opponents — and Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper.
Rob Ford's brother, Doug Ford, who will be running for mayor of Toronto in his brother's place, said in a statement to the Toronto Star, "Rob will beat this."
Cohen says Ford will undergo two rounds of chemotherapy, which will last longer than a month. Doctors will then review how Ford has responded to the treatment.

Local restaurants and farmers alike say they're feeling the impact of the California drought.
At the Heart of the City Farmer's Market in San Francisco, evidence of the drought's impact can be seen at the fruit and vegetable stands.
"There's some produce we usually grow other years but we're not growing this year because there's not enough water," said Mario Diaz, who works for James Paoletti Farms in Linden.
Mario Diaz said the Central Valley farm he works for didn't plant corn at all this year and grew only limited amounts of lettuce.
“It's really different from other years," said Diaz.
Jeanette Avila of Avila Farms said they grew about a third less produce compared to previous years.
"If we grew five rows of tomatoes (before), we're reducing to three," said Avila.
The Heart of the City farmer's market typically operates three days a week. But it has put its Friday market on temporary hiatus due to drought conditions.
Local restaurants are also feeling the impact. The Golden Gate restaurant association says the drought is pushing prices up.
At Kuleto's in Union Square, executive chef Robert Helstrom says he's seen a dramatic impact on price and availability.
"I was just talking to a farmer today who grows olives and almonds. Expect prices of almonds to skyrocket because they're cutting the trees down because they don't have enough water to keep them alive," said Helstrom.
Helstrom said whether it's at the grocery stores, farmer's markets or local restaurants, Bay Area consumers are in many cases paying more.
"It's really all about the supply and demand, and then that drives the price up," said Helstrom.
Several growers said as a result of the difficult growing season, even though tomatoes may be in shorter supply, they're sweeter and have more intense flavor. One farmer also said the peppers are hotter.Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:49:40 -0700
The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office is investigating two reports of a man flashing his genitals and masturbating in front of females near a beach area south of Santa Cruz, deputies said Wednesday.
On August 18, a woman told deputies she was hiking past a county sanitation facility on Lode Street by Moran Lake Beach in the Live Oak area at about 7 a.m. when she saw a man sitting on the trail exposing and sexually gratifying himself, Sgt. Kelly Kent said.
The suspect then turned and left the unincorporated county area, Kent said.
The man, described as Caucasian, about 20 years old, 5 feet 7 inches in height, clean-shaven with medium length hair and wearing dark clothing, fled the area before deputies could locate him, according to Kent.
Then on Sept. 12, at 7:07 a.m., deputies were dispatched to 22795 E. Cliff Drive in the area of Moran Lake Beach on a report by a female jogger who said a man exposed his genitals and masturbated himself towards her, according to Kent.
The woman was in the same general area as the first incident, behind the Lode Street sanitation facility on trails between 30th Avenue and Moran Lake, and told deputies that the man fled after she informed him she was calling the sheriff's office, deputies said.
The jogger said that the man looked like a Caucasian male adult with a dark complexion or a Hispanic male in his 30s, about 6 feet 2 inches tall with a normal build and wearing a red plaid hooded jacket.
Deputies increased patrols of the area and obtained a surveillance video from the sanitation facility showing the suspect in the Sept. 12 incident running from the scene, Kent reported.
The sheriff's office believes that the same person was involved in both incidents even though the victims' descriptions of him differ, according to Kent.
Deputies are asking the public for help in apprehending the suspect and request those with information about him or who have experienced similar unreported incidents to call the sheriff's office dispatch directly at (831) 471-1121.Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:14:11 -0700 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
