Tony Snow cancels speeches at EWU

SPOKANE -- Former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow has canceled a series of speaking engagements at Eastern Washington University because of illness.

Snow was supposed to make a series of appearances Tuesday at EWU. However, he was taken to the hospital to be treated for exhaustion, in consultation with his doctor, according to a source at the University.

The source said he checked into the hospital at 9:30 a.m.

Snow was diagnosed with colon cancer several years ago, and he left his position as press secretary for President Bush in September to deal with the disease. He has said the cancer is in remission.

This week, Snow was hired by CNN to be a conservative commentator. Before being named Press Secretary, he spent several years working at CNN rival Fox News.

On Monday, Tony Snow appeared on KXLY 920 AM's Newscope with Mike Fitzsimmons.

KXLY.com's Brian Clark, KXLY 4's Janet O and the Associated Press contributed to this story.

Oh no! I thought with him getting the CNN gig that his health was better.

Likewise!!

I have to wonder if there isn't some odd connection... Although "the evil of CNN" might be one hypothesis, it might be just that the stress of starting up again has affected him...?

I do hope it's something temporary and that he's back in action soon, whether or not he can do the CNN gig. He's a good man and I wish him well.

The source said he checked into the hospital at 9:30 a.m.

And had the TV in his room turned to FOX News by 10:00.

Lots of prayers for Tony!

Friend of mine is waiting for test results. They found a spot on his lung. He’s a survivor of Stage 4 colon cancer, but very worried right now. Maybe someone could add a prayer for him, too.

A super great person.

He is, and I think we all love him here. I pray it is just exhaustion and not a return of the cancer.

Prayers for Tony.

My father died of colon cancer in 1985. First diagnosed in 1965, given a year to live. Made it to 1968 with another ‘attack’, then made it to 1983. We were blessed with 20 years of my wonderful father when he was first given one.

He is a good husband, father and man. We will pray for Tony. We saw him on CNN last evening when they said he would be joining them. He did not look well and we commented on that. Hope this is nothing and that we will see his face again soon. God bless you Tony.
