Breaking: Ann Romney diagnosed with breast cancer

Sad news from the Romney camp:

In a message from our Illinois State Senator Dan Rutherford, who was Gov. Mitt Romney's Campaign Manager for President in Illinois; comes this news:

I wanted you to know that Ann Romney was recently diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. Media reports have Mitt saying she is doing well after undergoing a lumpectomy.

In a statement issued to the press, Ann said, "While this is commonly referred to as early-stage breast cancer, it is technically not cancer, but rather precancer, as it is not invasive."

I'm glad to hear that Ann is doing well, but the news of cancer is never easy to bear. Please join me in keeping Ann as well as the entire Romney family in your thoughts and prayers.

I am a survivor.
