First Lady of Florida diagnosed with breast cancer

Casey DeSantis, the First Lady of Florida and wife of Governor Ron DeSantis, has just been diagnosed with breast cancer:

FOX NEWS – Casey DeSantis, the wife of Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer,” the first term Republican governor said in a statement shared first with Fox News on Monday.

“As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady. As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up,” the governor emphasized.

Casey DeSantis, a former producer and Emmy award winning television show host for the PGA tour, is 41-years old. Married since 2010, Casey and Ron DeSantis are the parents of Madison (4 years old), Mason (3 years old) and Mamie (18 months old), who was the first baby born in the Florida governor’s mansion in more than half a century.

It goes without saying that DeSantis will be on the lips of many people around the country praying for her, including many at The Right Scoop.

I just hope that doctors have caught this cancer early enough that they can stop it from spreading, remove it, and keep it from doing her harm. I think most of us know someone who has either died or has been completely wrecked by some form of cancer. My own grandmother died of breast cancer back in the 80s, though for her it wasn’t caught until it was already stage four.

We wish Casey DeSantis and her entire family well.
