Rudy Giuliani sought to allay renewed concerns about his health today following his brief hospitalization last week. "I'm perfectly healthy. I don't have cancer," he said during a stop in Harlem. Giuliani, who checked into a St. Louis hospital because of a severe headache and flu symptoms, said doctors found no signs of a recurrence of the prostate cancer that ended his Senate campaign seven years ago.
"I knew I didn't have cancer, but I wanted to be sure," said Giuliani during his annual visit to a Harlem home for needy children to read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. He said his doctor would release a full report soon. The former New York mayor has read the Christmas poem to children every year for 12 years, and he promised that a presidency would not mean an end to the tradition.
