One of the last remaining political Mohican of Lithuania, Mr Brazauskas has admitted to the Lietuvos Rytas daily that he is suffering from the lymphatic node cancer.  The former President, Prime Minister and honorary chairman of the Lithuania’s Social Democrat Party, the last First Secretary of the Lithuania’s Communist Party was informed about his condition on December. 

As the paper reports Mr Brazauskas has undergone four chemotherapy sessions, however, even though the cancer development has stabilised the healing is not happening either.  Mr Brazauskas, who is 76, was advised to undertake an aggressive treatment and is on the hormone treatment currently.  ‘As you see my face is swallowed, I have to take some forty tablets of prednizol a day.’

It was an open secret that Mr Brazauskas was gravely ill.  Media speculated that he was treated from the prostate cancer few years earlier, apparently successfully.  Ms Grybauskaite, Lithuania’s President elect was a Minister of Finance in the Brazauskas’ cabinet before she was delegated to the EU Commission.
