Joan Kennedy Has Breast Cancer Surgery

October 13, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

Joan Kennedy, former wife of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and mother of Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.), was recovering from breast cancer surgery.

Kennedy, 69, underwent a lumpectomy at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, said a person close to the family who, at the family's request, spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The surgery comes months after a legal battle with her children, who argued she was unfit to care for herself because of chronic alcoholism.
