Lewis has participated in the march for decades, but this year there was doubt surrounding his participation, because of his treatment for pancreatic cancer.

While he won’t be among the marchers, Lewis’ office said that he’ll greet marchers at the highest point of the bridge.

Back in December Lewis announced that he as cancer and vowed to fight it and to “keep fighting for the community.”
