Ann Romney: Breast Cancer Battle Was a Challenge and a Blessing
Ann Romney, the wife of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, appeared on America's Radio News Thursday to discuss her battle with breast cancer. Mrs. Romney, whom Democrat operative Hilary Rosen attacked a few weeks ago for being a stay-at-home mom, says that she fought breast cancer with husband Mitt at her side. Ann Romney was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2009, and is also battling multiple sclerosis. Click to hear the interview.
ANN ROMNEY: I've had a couple of serious health blows and so you again, just deal with the cards that are dealt you and push forward...You also realize that everyone faces challenges in life and that we all will be dealt a challenge...We cannot escape life without facing these very serious challenges...It makes us more human, more understanding of others who are going through their own sorrows. And so for me, it's opened my heart up and it's made me see others in a different light...It's all in all for me been a blessing in my life.
