DeSantis’ wife, Casey, had been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 41 in October of 2021. She completed her final round of Chemotherapy in January of 2022.
DeSantis cheered his wife on, calling her a “very, very strong woman.”
“She fights. She’s tough,” DeSantis said. “I mean she’s basically resigned that, you know, better that she has to go through it than others who may not be able to handle it as well. And that’s just, that’s why I love her. She’s an exceptional person.
Casey also released a statement, saying: “There are no words to express how truly blessed, grateful and humbled I am to hear the words cancer-free. To those who are in the fight, know there is hope. Have faith and stay strong.”
