NEW YORK (AP) _ Mary Travers, 67, of Peter, Paul and Mary is undergoing chemotherapy for a form of leukemia, but a full remission is expected within a few months, her publicist, Ken Sunshine, said Tuesday.

``Mary looks forward to touring again with the trio soon, and is grateful for the well wishes that have come to her from all over the world,'' the statement said. No other details were released.

Last February, Peter, Paul and Mary, known for songs such as ``Blowin' in the Wind'' and ``Puff, The Magic Dragon,'' released ``Carry It On,'' a five-disc box set of their greatest hits. They released their self-titled debut album in 1962.

The trio, comprised of Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey and Travers, have dates set for a spring 2005 tour beginning Feb. 18 at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, according to their Web site. There was no comment on whether concert dates would be canceled or rescheduled.
