Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) on Wednesday revealed he has been diagnosed with “a serious but curable form of cancer.”
Raskin said in a statement he was diagnosed with a common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that affects white blood cells in the body’s immune system.
The 60-year-old lawmaker said he was beginning chemo-immunotherapy at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C.
“I expect to be able to work through this period but have been cautioned by my doctors to reduce unnecessary exposure to avoid COVID-19, the flu and other viruses,” he said.
Raskin said he was specifically diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which usually develops in the lymph nodes deep inside the body. While fast-growing and aggressive, the cancer is treatable.

Wow, really terrible. Anyway, I need to get my tires rotated this week. I hate trying to do that on a Saturday.
In 1987 I lost a girlfriend to that type of lymphoma. You have to catch it early, or it’s a death sentence.
I don’t wish anyone having cancer.
If one can’t say anything nice about a democrat scumbag politician diagnosed with cancer like Raskin, then one shouldn’t say anything at all.
The 60-year-old lawmaker
60YO?? He looks closer to 70YO
Good luck to him. I wouldn’t wish cancer on my worst enemy.
Zero prayers for you Raskin, you’re on your own.
He has Obamacare, so he’s going to be ok.
Socialist medicine has advanced to the point where they can raise the dead.
How about them Bears?
He’s forgotten his mirror. (Dorian Gray reference)
I don’t wish cancer on anyone it’s bad karma.
I only wish congressman Rankin could experience it as
a plain citizen trying to get medical treatment without
Good luck Jaime, enjoy the best treatment your nation
Don’t wish him well or anything
Is getting medical care for cancer really sustainable?
What is his CO2 footprint?
It worked for James Earl “Jimmy” Carter.
I better not say anything, having just observed Christmas and all. Get back to me in a week or two!
All caution/ thrown to winds!
He has the Cadillac health care plan.
Not like us peasants.
It’s a good thing he is triple vaxxed or it could be a lot worse.
As I frequently post, leftys with Platinum healthcare seem to live forever....
Look at Jimmy Carter in his 90’s had brain cancer and is STILL ALIVE!!!
