Gov. Ron DeSantis has released a statement on Monday revealing that his wife, Casey DeSantis, has just been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer. As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made and impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady,” stated Gov. DeSantis in his official letter.
“As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.”
Ron and Casey DeSantis are very much what people could call an “alpha” couple. Casey is a former producer and has won an Emmy for her stellar coverage of the PGA tour. The pair have been married since the year 2010, and have three children aged four years, three years and 18 months, respectively.
The 41-year-old Casey DeSantis has been especially noted for her effort with organizations such as “Hope Florida- A Pathway to Prosperity, Economic Self-Sufficiency and Hope.”
