This news is sure to brighten your day
TownHall Reports. Earlier this month, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House Press Secretary and current GOP candidate for governor of Arkansas, underwent successful surgery to remove thyroid cancer.
Sanders said in a statement released Friday afternoon. “During a check-up earlier this month, my doctor ordered a biopsy on an area of concern in my neck and the test revealed that I had thyroid cancer,” “Today, I underwent a successful surgery to remove my thyroid and surrounding lymph nodes and by the grace of God I am now cancer-free,”
Sanders continued saying. “I want to thank the Arkansas doctors and nurses for their world-class care, as well as my family and friends for their love, prayers, and support,”
Sanders is likely to be the next governor of Arkansas.
In the statement she said. “I look forward to returning to the campaign trail soon. This experience has been a reminder that whatever battle you may be facing, don’t lose heart,” Sanders added. “As governor, I will never quit fighting for the people of our great state.”
Sanders’ doctor, John R. Sims of the CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, provided an update on her condition saying. “Sarah is currently recovering from surgery in which we removed her thyroid gland and some of the surrounding lymph nodes in her neck,” Dr. Sims explained. “The surgery went extremely well, and I expect her to be back on her feet even within the next 24 hours,” he added of the operation’s effects.
Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, also shared the good news on Twitter and said. “Our family is grateful to God and good doctors in Little Rock for the outcome! Go @SarahHuckabee !”
Sanders’ doctor diagnosed her with Stage I papillary thyroid carcinoma. It’s the most common type of thyroid cancer, which means she had an “excellent prognosis.”
As a result of Sanders’ successful surgery, she will require adjuvant radioactive iodine treatment and continued long-term follow-up. Sims stated. “She’s cancer-free now, and I don’t expect any of this to slow her down,”
As the race for Arkansas governor nears the conclusion, Huckabee has continued to outraise her Democrat opponent, and a recent poll from Echelon Insights shows her polling with 62 percent support.
A cancer diagnosis is a daunting and scary ordeal but news like this makes us all feel a lot better. We are happy to hear this news and thank God for protecting this fearless America First Patriot. We wish Sanders good health and can’t wait to see her claim victory in her Arkansas election
