Rob Ford is starting the next phase of his cancer treatment on Monday.

The former Toronto mayor will be undergoing 27 days of radiation to attack a tumour in his abdomen.

He was diagnosed with a rare abdominal cancer in mid-September and dropped his bid to be re-elected mayor but did win a seat on council in October.

Last month, Ford revealed that the tumour had shrunk by about half following chemotherapy.
