Buncombe County Commissioner Mike Fryar announced Sept. 6 that his fight against lung cancer is going well.
“I would like to thank everyone for all of their support the last few months,” he wrote in a Facebook message. “I received good news from my doctor today. The scan results came back good and the tumor is 90 percent gone. I will begin two more chemo treatments which they believe will complete my treatments and things are looking very positive.”
In June, Fryar revealed that he’d been diagnosed with a single tumor in his lung.
