More about Herman Cain

As of right now, polls show that Herman Cain is in the lead for the Republican presidential race.  Here's a few points about him that go unmentioned.

Cain has been married for 43 years to Gloria Cain (née Etchison), who is a homemaker along with stints as a teacher and a librarian. The couple have two children and three grandchildren. Cain is an associate minister at Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, which he joined at the age of 10. The church is part of the National Baptist Convention, USA. A sometimes gospel vocalist, Cain performed on the 13-track album Sunday Morning released by Selah Sound Production & Melodic Praise Records in 1996.

Disclosures filed during his campaign in 2011 categorized Cain's wealth as of that time as $2.9-to-$6.6 million, with Cain's income for both 2010 and 2011 combined being $1.1 to $2.1 million.

In 2006, Cain was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in his colon and metastases to his liver and given a 30 percent chance of survival. Cain underwent surgery and chemotherapy following the diagnosis, and has since reported that he is in remission.

Cain received the 1996 Horatio Alger Award and has received honorary degrees from Creighton University, Johnson & Wales University, Morehouse College, University of Nebraska, New York City Technical College, Purdue University, Suffolk University, and Tougaloo College.
