After poking some good-natured fun at State Senator Carole Migden for her driving mishaps last week, we now feel obliged to tell you guys that she's revealed that she was diagnosed with leukemia 10 years ago and thinks that her medication might have affected her driving that day.

Migden says she was diagnosed in 1997, was unable to find a bone marrow match, but successfully fought off the disease nonetheless, saying she lost her hair but not her will to live. She was proclaimed disease-free in February of this year by her doctors, but is still on chemotherapy drugs.

Migden also says she's going to get neurological testing to make sure everything is okay because she doesn't remember anything about what happened involving the accident last Friday.

Congratulations to Carole Migden for fighting off leukemia and we wish her good health moving forward.
