JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The City of Jonesboro posted on Facebook Mayor Harold Perrin ringing the bell at his last chemotherapy treatment.
Perrin, who announced back in July that he would not seek reelection for health reasons, has been battling bladder cancer.
In the post, the city says, “The mayor still has a few follow-up appointments in the next few months, but his reports have shown him to be cancer-free, and he is definitely pleased to be finished with the chemo.
“I want to thank all my prayer warriors who came through for me. I know this has all be in God’s hands, and I am humbled by the support of our community,” the mayor said.
Longtime friend Harold Copenhaver is set to become the new Mayor of Jonesboro in 2021.
Perrin also got a custom firefighting ax to commemorate his years of support of the Jonesboro Fire Department and the City of Jonesboro.
