The mayor's wife Maggie Daley is a bone cancer survivor.

Mayor Daley offered a generally upbeat report Saturday on his wife, Maggie Daley, who is fighting cancer.

"She's doing much better. She has a fracture, as you know. That's very serious because she can't move her leg. But she's exercising part of it, and all that, which is really important," Mayor Daley.

Daley spoke during the 18th annual National Rebuilding Day. He praised thousands of volunteers for improving 75 homes in Chicago and the suburbs.

It was a special day for Chicago's six-term mayor. Ald. Emma Mitts led a musical tribute for Daley's 68th birthday.

Daley joked that he feels like he is 38.
