U.S. Representative Dan Kildee is recuperating from surgery after learning that he had cancer, according to a statement from the Democratic congressman’s chief of staff.
Dan Kildee’s Successful Tumor Removal
Dan Kildee underwent surgery on Monday, nearly a month after receiving a diagnosis of “squamous cell carcinoma, a serious but curable form of cancer,” as per officials. The congressman from Michigan’s Eighth Congressional District, a Democratic congressman, would reportedly stay at the George Washington University Hospital for a few days before going home to finish his treatment.
The statement said, “The Congressman appreciates the care of his fantastic team of doctors and is grateful to have received his cancer diagnosis early.” “The Congressman will be unable to participate in House of Representatives voting due to his operation and recovery period.
To keep his constituents informed of his viewpoints and to submit written statements for the record to the House Clerk for any missing recorded votes, the Congressman will be doing this during this period. The Congressman’s district office in Washington, D.C., as well as his office there, are still open and accessible to help residents.

The wonderful words and well wishes that have been sent the democratic congressman way since his diagnosis has touched him, his wife Jennifer, and the Kildee family. The congressman expresses appreciation to his constituents and other lawmakers for their ongoing support.
In a March 31 Instagram post, Kildee claimed that after a routine exam revealed an enlarged lymph node, further testing confirmed his diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. The prognosis following surgery and treatment, according to Kildee, is “excellent,” and his office will remain open while he recovers. “Hearing the words “you have cancer” is never pleasant. But I’m aware that a great number of other families have experienced a cancer diagnosis,” he remarked.
