    Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has revealed that she is "cancer-free" after receiving treatment for thyroid cancer.

    In a statement Friday, Sanders confirmed that she was treated for thyroid cancer after doctors discovered the disease during a check-up. Sanders underwent surgery to remove her thyroid and surrounding lymph nodes, and came out cancer-free. Sanders' doctor said she would fully recover within 24 hours of the surgery. Sanders, who served as White House press secretary under former President Donald Trump, is currently running for governor of Arkansas.

    "During a check-up earlier this month, my doctor ordered a biopsy on an area of concern in my neck and the test revealed that I had thyroid cancer," Sanders said. "Today, I underwent a successful surgery to remove my thyroid and surrounding lymph nodes and by the grace of God I am now cancer-free. I want to thank the Arkansas doctors and nurses for their world-class care, as well as my family and friends for their love, prayers, and support. I look forward to returning to the campaign trail soon. This experience has been a reminder that whatever battle you may be facing, don't lose heart. As governor, I will never quit fighting for the people of our great state."

    Sanders' doctor informed supporters of some of the details of her diagnosis and the procedure in a separate statement.

    "Sarah is currently recovering from surgery in which we removed her thyroid gland and some of the surrounding lymph nodes in her neck," said Dr. John R. Sims, Head and Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgeon at CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock. "The surgery went extremely well, and I expect her to be back on her feet even within the next 24 hours. This is a Stage I papillary thyroid carcinoma which is the most common type of thyroid cancer and has an excellent prognosis. While she will need adjuvant treatment with radioactive iodine, as well as continued long term follow up, I think it's fair to say she's now cancer free, and I don't anticipate any of this slowing her down."

    Sanders, 40, ran away with the Arkansas gubernatorial primary in May, netting more than 83% of the vote. She announced her candidacy on January 25, 2021, and almost immediately received the endorsement of former President Trump, his first endorsement after leaving office.

    "Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a warrior who will always fight for the people of Arkansas and do what is right, not what is politically correct," Trump said at the time. "Sarah will be a GREAT governor and she has my Complete and Total Endorsement!"

    She smashed the state record for fundraising during the primary, raking in $9.1 million dollars from more than 67,000 donors by July 2021. In addition to the Trump endorsement, she is also endorsed by current Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, her father, former Governor Mike Huckabee, Arkansas Republican Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton, all four of Arkansas' members of the U.S. House, as well as former Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Donald Trump Jr.

    Sanders will face off against nuclear engineer and minister Chris Jones in the 2022 election.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
