The wife of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“As a mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as first lady,” he said in a statement shared with Fox News. “As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state.”
The 43-year-old governor went on to say his wife — whom he married in 2010 — is a “true fighter” who will “never, never, never give up,” an apparent nod to a speech delivered by Winston Churchill in 1941, when he was prime minister of the United Kingdom.
