Washington (CNN) – California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is resting comfortably after undergoing surgery for breast reconstruction on Tuesday.
Fiorina was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Following her diagnosis, Fiorina received treatment that included chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and radiation, according to a statement from Fiorina campaign Chief of Staff Deborah Bowker.
"Since that time, Carly has been actively campaigning while also taking the steps toward reconstruction," Bowker said.
"This morning she successfully completed the final surgery in that reconstruction process. Carly is in good spirits and is happy to have concluded this difficult chapter in her life," Bowker added. "She is thankful to her family, friends and the many people who have supported her throughout this successful battle."
Fiorina is vying to oust three-term Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.
Bowker ended her statement by saying, "A quick recovery is expected, and Carly is looking forward to being back on the campaign trail in a matter of days."
