A spokesman for Democratic Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, who had invited Sheehan and is scheduled himself to speak at the demonstration, said Tuesday that Sheehan had to cancel her trip.

Mayoral spokesman Patrick Thronson said the 49-year-old Sheehan is still recovering from a recent hysterectomy and is too ill to travel.

Sheehan, who was scheduled to appear at a news conference tonight at 9 shortly after her planned arrival in Salt Lake City, rose to prominence when she spoke out against Bush and the war after her son was killed in Iraq in 2004.
