MAYOR BOB WASSON RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL
(SEDALIA, MISSOURI) : Mayor Bob Wasson will be able to enjoy his first weekend home upon release from St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City today. The Mayor had been hospitalized since an April 25 surgery to remove a metastatic brain tumor. The Mayor underwent a subsequent surgery to address colon cancer, identified by his doctors as the primary source of the brain tumor.
Mayor Wasson is anxious to return to Sedalia and resume his normal course of duties. In consultation with his physicians and family, the Mayor will continue to maintain a lightened schedule at City Hall.
Mayor Wasson and his family appreciate the community’s continual support through their cards, thoughts and prayers.
