Peter Torks Cancer Reoccurs

Peter Tork’s cancer has recurred, a spokeswoman for the Mansfield resident and former Monkee said Thursday.

“The doctors have given him an excellent chance, 80 percent, of containing this new tumor and shrinking it, said Therra C. Gwyn, who described Tork as “shaken but not stirred” by the news.

Tork had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer earlier this year and had undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment successfully enough to have resumed performing in recent weeks, including gigs in Mansfield and Manchester.

The singer and guitarist, who now performs as Shoe Suede Blues, will continue radiation treatment, Gwyn said.
