Senate Minority Leader Karen Mayne issues the following statement regarding her health status:
“Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. I have felt them all, and I greatly appreciate all of you and your support.
“This past week has been difficult for my family and me as I have been forced to focus on my health amidst unfortunate news. I had an accident where I broke my shoulder, and during the medical analysis, I discovered that I have cancer. With the support of my family and friends, I will undergo the proper treatment regimen suggested by my doctors.
“I am hopeful to return to the Legislature soon where I can be with all of you, my friends, and colleagues. I have unfinished work to do. I look forward to being with you again.”
