Cong. Lewis, American Hero, Diagnosed With Pancreatic Cancer IV

Our beloved alma mater and mothership brings us the news that Congressman John Lewis of Georgia has been diagnosed with stage IV Pancreatic cancer. A devastating diagnosis, but not a death sentence. There are some treatments to try, but pancreatic cancer is perhaps in the top 3 of “the worst” to get, and his is advanced. Breaking: Congressman John Lewis says he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.More at 6. @wsbtv — Justin Wilfon (@JustinWilfonWSB) December 29, 2019 His statement: I have been in some kind of fight- for freedom, equality, basic human rights – for nearly my entire life. I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now. “This month in a routine medical visit, and subsequent tests, doctors discovered Stage IV pancreatic cancer. This diagnosis has been reconfirmed. “While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis, doctors have told me that recent medical advances have made this type of cancer treatable in many cases, that treatment options are no longer as debilitating as they once were, and that I have a fighting chance. “So I have decided to do what I know to do and do what I have always done: I am going to fight it and keep fighting for the Beloved Community. We still have many bridges to cross. “To my constituents: being your representative in Congress is the honor of a lifetime. I will return to Washington in coming days to continue our work and begin my treatment plan, which will occur over the next several weeks. I may miss a few votes during this period, but with God’s grace I will be back on the front lines soon. “Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this journey.” Pancreatic cancer at this stage has a staggeringly low survival rate, though it is not the untreatable brain cancer that brought down Ted Kennedy and John McCain. There have been people successfully treated for this type of cancer, including my wife’s aunt. They are rare exceptions. But if there was ever a person I would bet upon to fight it, it would be the man who practically had his head beat in protesting for civil rights, crossing a bridge. He could have died that day, but fought through it. If you pray, pray like hell. Not because we need Cong. Lewis in the fight for this nation, but simply because Congressman Lewis is just that good a person. He deserves more time to help more people on this earth and more time to be helped and thanked. If you don’t pray, do whatever you can do to assist him in his fight, donate to the American Cancer Society, call his office with warm wishes, donate $10 to the SPLC in his name, something, anything. He deserves no less. May God and the loving moral spirit of this universe be with you, Congressman. We support you with love and charity. We will do our best to follow your example, always. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com and on Twitter @MiciakZoom
