Governor Lee releases update on his wife’s cancer treatments
Maria Lee next faces a bone marrow transplant
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WDEF) – Governor Bill Lee on Thursday has updated his wife’s battle with lymphoma.
Maria Lee was diagnosed back in August and immediately underwent surgery.
She kept a low profile during her husband’s re-election campaign and has missed several holiday events she normally leads.
Today, the Governor announced she is entering a new phase of her treatment.
“Maria and I are grateful for the outpouring of prayers and support we have received since her lymphoma diagnosis last August. The first phase of treatment went well, and we thank the medical team for their exceptional care and commitment. Later this month, Maria will begin the next phase of treatment, as she prepares to undergo a bone marrow transplant. While there are difficult days ahead, Maria and I have great trust in the Lord. We too are praying that God brings peace and comfort to all Tennesseans who are facing challenges in their own lives.”
