Judy Nerat Fighting Cancer

One of the U.P.’s State Representatives says she has cancer.

Democrat Judy Nerat of Wallace said last night she’s been diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

It’s a cancer of blood plasma cells.

She calls the team of doctors at a Milwaukee hospital helping her deal with the disease terrific.

Nerat says she plans to be back at work as soon as she’s physically up to it.

She was elected to the State House last fall from the 108th District, succeeding term-limited Republican Tom Casperson of Escanaba.
