Statement from Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic (DFL-Minneapolis) released the following statement today:

“Life is full of surprises, including unwelcome challenges.  

In late December, I had an abnormal pap smear test. Since mid-January, I have undergone a series of additional tests and just very recently learned I have cancer. On Friday, my doctors determined I should undergo surgery on Monday to remove a cancerous tumor. I did so yesterday; the surgery was a success; and I am grateful to my doctors, nurses, and all the support staff at the University of Minnesota for the care I received.
