Ford was admitted to Mt. Sinai Hospital late last month for ongoing treatment of tumours on his abdomen.
Doctors at Mount Sinai Hospital are combating the cancer with surgery and an innovative targeted chemotherapy known as the Panov Program.
Despite his diagnosis in September 2014 and ongoing treatment, Ford has continued to work as a city councillor for the western suburb of Etobicoke North since October 2014 after bowing out of the mayoral race due to his health.
