True to her word to keep her constituents updated, Broome County Executive Debbie Preston has released an update on her battle with lung cancer.

In an email to supporters, Preston announced that she will head to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City next week for surgery.

The County Executive will have the upper lobe of her left lung removed.

After spending the week in New York, Preston is expected to return home for a recovery period.

As she indicated previously, she intends to lead meetings via Skype and remain actively involved in the decision-making process.
