Gov Candidate in U.S Credits God for Successful Cancer Surgery


Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a Republican governorship candidate in Arkansas, United States, has announced that she is free from cancer due to God’s grace.

She made the announcement last Friday. Earlier in the month, The Blaze reported that she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. However, she is now cancer-free.

The statement read, "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.

"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. I want to thank the Arkansas doctors and nurses for their world-class care, as well as my family and friends for their love, prayers, and support.

“I look forward to returning to the campaign trail soon. This experience has been a reminder that whatever battle you may be facing, don't lose heart. As governor, I will never quit fighting for the people of our great state."

The surgery was carried out by Dr. John Sims. He said in a statement: "Sarah is currently recovering from surgery in which we removed her thyroid gland and some of the surrounding lymph nodes in her neck.

"The surgery went extremely well, and I expect her to be back on her feet even within the next 24 hours. This is a Stage I papillary thyroid carcinoma which is the most common type of thyroid cancer and has an excellent prognosis.

"While she will need adjuvant treatment with radioactive iodine, as well as continued long term follow up, I think it's fair to say she's now cancer free, and I don't anticipate any of this slowing her down.”

Previously, Sanders had worked as White House Press for former President Donald Trump. Trump has endorsed her candidacy in the 2022 Arkansas gubernatorial race. She is also the daughter of former Arkansas governor, Mike Huckabee.

Meanwhile, the Democratic opponent of Sanders, Chris Jones, has sent his well wishes and prayers to her.

He said in a statement, "Our hearts go out to you, Sarah. Our family is thinking of you and praying for you and your family. It's truly a blessing that you caught this cancer early and were able to receive world-class treatment so quickly. From one family of Arkansans to another, we send you hope, love, and healing.

"Our family has been on this journey before, and, while it's not easy, we know personally the power of prayer, the healing hand of God, and the strength that comes from being surrounded by community. May you have an abundance of all in this season. We wish you a successful recovery. God bless."
