I am grateful to the excellent medical staff in Arkansas to my family and friends and to God for his healing hand. I look forward to getting back out on the campaign trail soon. Do not give up hope no matter how difficult the challenge you are facing may be. I hope that my story will serve as an inspiration to you. No matter what, as governor of this great state, I will never stop working for the benefit of its citizens.

As per the reports of, Sanders’s doctor, John Sims released a statement saying that she is doing well after surgery to remove her thyroid gland and some lymph nodes in her neck. Papillary thyroid carcinoma, the most common form of thyroid cancer is curable in its early stages, he said.

She will need radioactive iodine as an adjuvant treatment and long-term follow-up, but I think it’s fair to say she’s now cancer-free, Sims said.
