LOS ANGELES – Maureen Reagan, the cancer-stricken daughter of former President Ronald Reagan, returned to her Sacramento-area home on Monday from a hospital where she had been receiving radiation for two brain tumors.
"She is thrilled to be home," her husband, Dennis Revell, said by telephone. "She has been very inspired and appreciative of all the cards and goodwill from friends and total strangers. She's taking every day as it comes."
Ms. Reagan, 60, will undergo weekly chemotherapy treatments in her battle against cancer. She completed whole-brain radiation on Thursday.
"It's good to be home," said Revell, who has been with her constantly at Mercy San Juan Hospital in Carmichael.
Ms. Reagan, whose mother is Reagan's first wife, actress Jane Wyman, was diagnosed with the deadly skin cancer melanoma on Dec. 12, 1996. It has since spread.
Last November she received biochemotherapy treatments at a Santa Monica hospital for a malignant tumor on her right pubic bone. She was sent home in March, but mild seizures on July 4 led to discovery of two brain tumors.
The former president's eldest daughter became a national spokeswoman for the Alzheimer's Association after her father announced in 1994 that he had the disease.
