    Carly Fiorina treated for breast cancer
    Former
    Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has been diagnosed with breast cancer
    and underwent surgery Monday at Stanford Hospital, according to a
    report in The San Francisco Chronicle.Fiorina, a Republican largely
    expected to run for a U.S. Senate seat for California, was diagnosed
    February 20, one day before addressing a state GOP convention in
    Sacramento, according to the report.”She’s doing great…she only just
    learned about this,” the paper quoted Deborah Bowker, her chief of
    staff, as saying in an e-mail. She said Fiorina’s prognosis for full
    recovering and that she is expected to resume “all of the activities to
    which she is enthusiastically committed.”

    Fiorina, 54, was the
    chairman and CEO of HP from 1999 to 2005, but was ousted after
    disagreements with the board of directors over how to execute the
    company’s strategy. During her tenure at HP, Fiorina resisted calls to
    break the Silicon Valley icon into two separate companies, with one
    focused on business customers and another focused on consumers. HP’s
    merger with Compaq Computer, which was spearheaded by Fiorina, has also
    been criticized.

    In her 2006 book, “Tough Choices,” Fiorina
    detailed the inner workings of what she saw as an often-divided board
    of directors, calling some members’ behavior “amateurish and immature.”
    Since
    leaving HP, Fiorina has dabbled in politics, appearing on behalf of
    Sen. John McCain at the Republican National Convention during his
    unsuccessful bid for the presidency last year. Fiorina was also a
    member of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s transition team in
    2003.
