Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill posted a note to Tumblr Monday afternoon disclosing that she’s recently been diagnosed with breast cancer.
McCaskill wrote in her post that she was diagnosed recently through a mammogram; she didn’t state what stage the cancer is. “It’s a little scary,” she wrote, “but my prognosis is good and I expect a full recovery.” She added that she’ll be treated in St. Louis for the next three weeks and absent from the Senate.
That truly, truly sucks. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
