“After a recent routine yearly physical, it was discovered that I have a very early, highly treatable and curable type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma - large B-cell lymphoma. My treatment will take place every three weeks over the next few months. It will consist of a series of chemotherapy sessions."

Camp continued: "In between treatments I will continue my work as a United States Representative for Michigan’s Fourth District and as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Thankfully my health is otherwise excellent and my doctors and I expect a full recovery and cure. My family and I appreciate the support, good wishes and understanding we have received.”

    Thankfully, he has health insurance to get him through this. Without insurance, he would soon be broke. Maybe he will change his mind about repealing ACA.

    Get well, Mt Camp. You might consider that your treatment is possible because of the socialistic healthcare you have as part of being an elected federal official and how fortunate that you are not one of the 40% of Americam's who (1) might never find out they have a problem in time and (2) don't have insurance or the income from their 2 or 3 part-time Republican jobs to pay for treatment.
