Chief Joe Burton is working full time while undergoing chemotherapy for stage 4 colon cancer. Last month, he went to Houston's M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
His wife says a doctor there said Chief Burton is receiving the best treatment possible in Wichita Falls but did order several tests. She says if those tests show chemotherapy is not stopping the progression of his cancer the doctor wants him to return to M.D. Anderson for possible research.
Burton was first diagnosed with cancer in August 2012 but it returned four months ago.
