DeSantis comments on wife’s breast cancer diagnosis, says “I’ve got faith in her” and “faith in the big guy upstairs”

Discussing his wife’s Casey’s breast cancer diagnosis, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said “I’ve got faith in her” and “faith in the big guy upstairs”

“Her view is, ‘better me than someone who might not be able to deal with it this way’ … that’s just her spirit,” he continued. Casey is 41 years old and she and Ron have three young children under the age of 5.

“We’ve got a road ahead,” the DeSantis added. “Our kids are young enough that they don’t really know what’s going on.”

“She fights. She’s tough.” And her embrace of the treatment ahead is encouraging, DeSantis also said.  “That’s why I love her. She’s an exceptional person.”
