TORONTO — A Toronto radio station reports that the brother of Rob Ford says the former Toronto mayor has hit a "bump in the road" in his recovery from cancer.

Doug Ford told AM640 on Tuesday that "it's not good news or bad news ... but it's nothing we can't get over."

The radio station says he declined to comment on the exact nature of the "bump" but added Rob Ford will hold a news conference "in the next day or so."

Doug Ford said his brother is a fighter.

Rob Ford was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer which affects the connective tissues known as pleomorphic liposarcoma in September 2014.
