Ex-Sen. Specter plans to win fight against cancer

(CNN) - Former longtime U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter said Tuesday he plans to win his fight against cancer.

A source close to his office said Specter was battling for his life early Tuesday after he was recently diagnosed with a "serious form of cancer." He had a "big flare-up" of the disease Monday night, the source said.
