Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his beautiful wife Casey has breast cancer on Monday morning. We are all praying for the DeSantis family right now.
Here’s the official announcement from the Governor.
“’I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer. 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,” the Florida governor said.
“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,” he said.
On Monday it was reported that his wife Casey has been diagnosed with breast cancer, The Daily Mail reported.
The governor did not say at what stage the cancer was detected.
Casey DeSantis, 41, and her husband are the parents of Madison, 4 years old, Mason, three years old and Mamie, 18 months.
Since the governor took office in 2019, Casey has launched four major initiatives, including most recently spearheading ‘Hope Florida – A Pathway to Prosperity, Economic Self-Sufficiency and Hope.’ The program benefits single parents, Floridians on government assistance, single mothers with substance abuse issues and children aging out of the foster care system.
She formerly worked for the PGA tour as a producer and television host.
All of us at The DC Patriot send our heartfelt prayers to the DeSantis family.
