Nick Foley returned to the WHIO anchor desk on Monday morning after going through seven months of treatment for Multiple Myeloma.
Foley announced his cancer diagnosis in April. He’s been off and on the air at the Dayton CBS affiliate since.
Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells and typically affects the bones and immune system. Foley immediately began radiation and chemotherapy.
The station said doctors told Foley the treatment was making great progress in July. In August and September, Foley underwent a stem cell transplant. He made weekly trips to Columbus beginning in May for his treatment.
“Lisa and I then made the decision to continue doing everything we could to extend my remission by electing to undergo a stem cell transplant,” said Foley. “According to the most recent statistics, patients who undergo stem cell transplants after treatment typically add several years to remission before the first setback by an average of about 5 to 6 years.”
Foley has been recovering at home for the past several weeks.
