Kentucky's Secretary of State Elaine Walker finished radiation treatment for breast cancer and says she is cancer-free.
Walker was diagnosed in October after a routine mammogram.
Her office says she underwent surgery followed by twice-daily radiation treatments for five straight days.
The 60-year-old former Bowling Green Mayor was appointed Secretary of State this year.
She lost her bid for a full term in the May primary election.
Governor Beshear has since appointed her to be the State's Parks Commissioner.
Walker will take on her new role January 2nd.
