TORONTO - Outgoing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be selling off the rest of his "Robbie Bobbie" bobble heads on Friday.

Ford released a statement saying proceeds from the bobble heads will be going to the two hospitals that have been treating him for cancer over the past two months.

He says supporters can buy the collectors' items at the mayor’s office for $30 each with the net proceeds going to support the Humber River Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Previous sales of Ford bobble heads have brought long lineups to city hall.

Doctors discovered a rare and aggressive cancer in Ford's abdomen in September and the scandal-plagued mayor dropped his bid for re-election shortly afterwards.

Ford's brother — Doug Ford — told local TV station CP24 on Thursday that the mayor is returning to hospital next week to undergo a fourth round of chemotherapy.

Toronto's mayor-elect John Tory takes office Dec. 2.
