As you have heard in past news stories, Congressman Scott DesJarlais, MD (TN-04) announced last week that he has been diagnosed with early stage cancer in his neck. The Congressman will undergo radiation and chemotherapy and is expected to make a full recovery. Congressman DesJarlais will be receiving care in Chattanooga, which will begin this week with the majority of it occurring during the August Congressional recess.

Congressman DesJArlais stated:

“I am extremely fortunate to have caught this disease in its early stage. My doctors and I expect a full recovery and that treatment will not interfere with my work in Congress. My wife, Amy, and our entire family are thankful for prayers and support during this period of treatment. I look forward to continuing to serve Tennessee’s Fourth District as we fight to return our nation back to the constitutional principles it was founded on.”
