Arizona Sen. Christine Marsh announced in a Facebook post on Thursday that she has been diagnosed with cancer.

She said in the post that it has been a very difficult year for her as she is still coping with the death of her 25-year-old son from an overdose last year after he ingested a pill he thought was Percocet but was tainted with fentanyl.

She added we’re still dealing with a global pandemic and there have been droughts, fires and floods.

“So, perhaps it should come as no surprise that life had another challenge in store for me,” Marsh said in the post.

Marsh said she had successful surgery last week and the pathology report is favorable.

“I will still need follow-up chemo but I’m alive, I’m a fighter and I will persevere,” Marsh said.

“After facing my absolute worst fear of losing a child, everything else seems manageable.”
