Republican Congressman Steve Scalise Announces He Has Blood Cancer

Thankfully, Scalise said it’s a ‘very treatable’ form of cancer


(100percentFedUp) House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) announced Tuesday he was diagnosed with blood cancer.

In a statement, Scalise said it’s a “very treatable” form of cancer.


“After a few days of not feeling like myself this past week, I had some blood work done. The results uncovered some irregularities and after undergoing additional tests, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a very treatable blood cancer,” Scalise said Tuesday.

“I have now begun treatment, which will continue for the next several months. I expect to work through this period and intend to return to Washington, continuing my work as Majority Leader and serving the people of Louisiana’s First Congressional District,” he continued.

“I am incredibly grateful we were able to detect this early and that this cancer is treatable. I am thankful for my excellent medical team, and with the help of God, support of my family, friends, colleagues, and constituents, I will tackle this with the same strength and energy as I have tackled past challenges,” he added.

“I join with so many others in prayer for Steve Scalise and his family. The same faith, family support, and internal strength that made Steve such an inspiration to others after he was shot, will bring him through this illness and once more inspire us all,” Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said.
