Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday made an announcement about his wife Casey’s successful breast cancer treatment.

DeSantis posted a video thanking people for sending their thoughts and prayers to his family after his wife was diagnosed, noting the surgeries and treatments had made his wife “cancer-free.”

“Thank you for doing that,” DeSantis said of the thoughts and prayers to his family. “It’s lifted her spirits; it’s made a tremendous difference.” DeSantis also passed a message of encouragement to women fighting breast cancer, saying they “can overcome this.” His wife first made her diagnosis public in October of last year.

Casey DeSantis tweeted on Thursday sharing the video and encouraging other women with breast cancer to keep fighting. “There are no words to express how truly blessed, grateful and humbled I am to hear the words cancer free,” the Florida first lady wrote. “To those who are in the fight, know there is hope. Have faith and stay strong.”

Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar, who is a Republican representing Florida’s 27th district, tweeted: “The power of prayer never fails. May the Lord continue to keep you healthy & strong @FLCaseyDeSantis.”

Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House press secretary for ex-President Donald Trump, also posted a message. “It is so wonderful to hear that our great First Lady of Florida @FLCaseyDeSantis is now cancer free. My family has been praying for Casey and will continue to pray for all those fighting breast cancer!” McEnany wrote.
