Sen. Edward Kennedy will have a presence at the Democratic National Convention even if he can't make it to Denver.

A Kennedy spokeswoman said Monday that the Massachusetts senator taped a five-minute video over the weekend to air during the party gathering at the end of the month. Crews visited his home on Cape Cod.

Kennedy suffered a seizure at his Hyannis Port house on May 17 and was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He underwent surgery and recently completed a six-week course of chemotherapy and radiation.

Kennedy made a surprise visit to the Senate floor in July to cast a Medicare vote, but his immune system remains repressed and it's unclear if he can attend a large public event like the convention.
