Employee takes cheeky gibe at CEO Christine Holgate

Liberal senator for NSW Jim Molan will step back from his duties to treat an aggressive cancer.

Senator Molan, 70, on Monday said he would take leave after receiving the shock diagnosis last week.

“I will be taking leave from the Senate for further testing to confirm the prognosis and to commence treatment,” he said in a statement.

“While this news has come as a shock, I have many reasons to be positive.

“I’m receiving the best possible care from my clinicians and have the love, support and prayers of my family.

“I have never been afraid to fight the battles that need to be fought and this is no exception.”

Senator Molan, the father of TV and radio personality Erin Molan, is a former major general in the Australian Army. He has been a senator for NSW since November 2019.
