Wasserman Schultz Statement on Senator Claire McCaskill’s Breast Cancer Announcement

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23), a breast cancer survivor, issued the following statement today after U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill announced she has breast cancer:

“Today I am thinking of, and sending my love and strength to my friend and colleague, Senator Claire McCaskill and her family as she heads to St. Louis for her breast cancer treatment. Senator McCaskill is a consummate public servant and tenacious fighter who will battle her cancer with the spirit and determination that we have all come to admire and respect.

“It is also promising to hear that Senator McCaskill and her doctors were able to detect her cancer early through the use of a mammogram, further underscoring the importance of screening, education and access to health care services. I wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to her return to the Senate where I'm confident she will continue to 'fight like a girl', as she joins our community of sister survivors."
