Rep. John Lewis Diagnosed With Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer
Sending prayers, love, and light to Rep. #JohnLewis who announced on Sunday that he’s been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
In a release Lewis said, “While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis, doctors have told me that recent medical advances have made this type of cancer treatable in many cases, that treatment options are no longer as debilitating as they once were, and that I have a fighting chance.”
He continued, “I have been in some kind of fight for freedom, equality, basic human rights for nearly my entire life. I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now.”
Lewis said he planned to return to Washington soon to continue working and to undergo treatment over the next several weeks.
