(FWD) – Rep. Jamie Raskin has announced that he has a “serious but curable form of cancer.” The Democrat from Maryland will begin chemotherapy.
“After several days of tests, I have been diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma, which is a serious but curable form of cancer,” Raskin said in a statement. “I am about to embark on a course of chemo-immunotherapy on an outpatient basis at Med Star Georgetown University Hospital and Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. Prognosis for most people in my situation is excellent after four months of treatment.”
Twitter instantly came to Rep. Raskin’s support, including popular Democratic influencer Nathalie Jacoby.
Raskin has just been elected as the head of the House Oversight Committee and made a name for himself as a strong Trump critic as a member of the January 6 Committee.
