Congressman Kildee Reveals Cancer Diagnosis

He will have surgery in the coming weeks.

Representative Dan Kildee of Michigan announced he has been diagnosed with a “serious, but curable” cancer.

In a tweet, he said he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. He called it a “serious but curable form of cancer.”

He said, “Thankfully, I caught it very early. With early detection and great doctors, they found a very small tumor on one of my tonsils.” Initially, doctors felt he had a swollen lymph node. “The results,” he said,” turns out were more significant.”

“It’s never easy to hear the words ‘you have cancer,’” he continued. “But I know that so many other families have gone through a cancer diagnosis.”

He will undergo surgery in “the coming weeks” and feels the “prognosis after surgery and treatment is excellent.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Representative Dan Kildee as he prepares for and undergoes surgery for the tumor on his tonsils. 
  • For a quick, complete, and cancer-free recovery for the congressman.
