CTU President Karen Lewis Undergoing Brain Surgery

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis was undergoing brain surgery as part of cancer treatment on Wednesday. The CTU President was first diagnosed with glioblastoma in 2015, and suffered a stroke last year. CTU Vice President Jesse Sharkey said that she was in “great spirits” and remains in regular contact. “To be honest, was more interested in directing a message to the CTU members, parents, students and people of this city. Karen said, and I quote – “Tell our delegates let’s get ready to fight,” Sharkey said in an emailed statement. According to NBC5, a source told the network that "in the course of this disease, any re-occurrence that requires intervention is very common." (NBC5)
