In July 1995, presidential candidate Robert Dole celebrated his 72nd birthday by releasing a detailed nine-page summary of his medical records. His personal physician told the press that despite the serious wounds Dole received during World War II, which left his right arm paralyzed and required the removal of one kidney, and despite his 1991 surgery for prostate cancer, his health was “excellent.” Dole was also photographed on his treadmill.
