Niagara Fall's Mayor resumes duties while fighting cancer

Niagara Fall's Mayor is returning to his duties as he continues to fight cancer.

Jim Diodati has been battling classical Hodgkin's Lymphoma since August, but has been quietly resuming some of his duties, albeit at on an altered schedule.

The mayor has been working at night to lessen the chance he may contract an illness during his chemotherapy treatment.

However, Diodati is still running to hold onto his job - his re-election team plans to open the campaign office this weekend. 

Also running for Niagara Falls mayor, Kip Finn, Dinah Lilia Mansour, and Kim Craitor.
