Paraguay president says feels 'renewed' by cancer treatment in Brazil

ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) — Paraguay's president says he feels renewed by his first session of cancer treatments and that he is ready to serve out his term, which ends in 2013.

President Fernando Lugo was released from a Brazilian hospital on Saturday, two days after a session of chemotherapy. His official website says the president reports that his health "has improved substantially."

He plans to attend a conference of international leftist activists this weekend in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion.

Doctors recently determined that Lugo has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He is scheduled to have five more chemotherapy treatments.
