LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - After 12 days in the hospital, WAVE 3 News anchor Dawne Gee has headed home following surgeries for kidney cancer. She was released from the hospital on Monday, Nov. 10.

Dawne's doctors were pleased with the results of her initial surgery on Oct. 30 to remove about one-third of one of her kidneys, but she developed a fairly common complication that required her to undergo a second surgery on Nov. 8. She's doing so well, doctors have sent her home to continue her recovery in the care of her family.

Dawne is expected to return to work at WAVE 3 News sometime in December. In her absence, she asks viewers to continue the work she enjoys the most: helping others. Dawne has been active in the Spread the Gloves, Angel Tree and A Recipe to End Hunger campaigns, and she asks that viewers donate to those worthy causes.
