City Council candidate fighting battle with cancer

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Sole candidate for City Council District 5, Randy Christian, is fighting a different kind of battle. 

Christian announced he'll begin treatment for colon cancer Monday at Covenant Medical Center.

30 years ago, he was first diagnosed, and after a routine check up, doctors discovered it came back.

Christian said it's important to be transparent with his constituents. 

"I want this to be a wake up call maybe to people who have put off screenings, whether that's a colon rectal screening, ladies be sure to perform self breast exams. Cancer is lurking around the corner for all of us at some degree," Christian said.

He expects to make a full recovery and doesn't believe it'll affect his ability to fulfill a full term on Council.
