Nancy Floreen, Montgomery Councilwoman, diagnosed with cancer
Montgomery Councilwoman Nancy Floreen announced today that she was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer.
Floreen wrote that, thanks to early detection, her prognosis is "excellent."
She wrote the following message on her blog, normally reserved for policy discussion:
"I usually reserve this space for policy discussions, but today I want to share something personal with you. I have been diagnosed recently with early-stage breast cancer. So, I’ll be counting not only on my family and long-time friends but also on the outstanding medical resources available in Montgomery County. Thanks to early detection, my prognosis is excellent. I will undergo treatment in the next couple of months, and I am hopeful there will be little disruption to my work on the Council. No doubt I will have my ups and downs as I find my way through this new chapter in my life, and I thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I also appreciate your respect for my privacy as I deal with the coming challenges. And one more thing -- if you haven’t already this year, remember to get a mammogram. I’m sure glad I did."
