Sarah Huckbee Sanders, the Arkansas GOP nominee for Governor and a Press Secretary for former President Donald Trump has revealed she has a cancer diagnosis.
Sanders announced she underwent a procedure to treat thyroid cancer.
According to the New York Post:
“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,” the 40-year-old Sanders, the Republican candidate for governor of the state, said in a statement.
“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,” she added.
Dr. John Sims, a surgeon at CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock, said Sanders was treated for Stage I papillary thyroid carcinoma.
