“I am saddened to report that Florida’s esteemed First Lady and my beloved wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer. As the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as First Lady. As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only have my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.”
Casey DeSantis, a former producer and Emmy award winning television show host for the PGA tour, is 41-years old. Married since 2010, Casey and Ron DeSantis are the parents of Madison (4 years old), Mason (3 years old) and Mamie (18 months old), who was the first baby born in the Florida governor’s mansion in more than half a century.
First Lady DeSantis has launched four major initiatives since Governor DeSantis was elected.
Most recently, First Lady DeSantis spearheaded Hope Florida – A Pathway to Prosperity, Economic Self-Sufficiency and Hope. Implemented through the Department of Children and Families, this initiative is uniting communities through ‘‘Care Navigators’ who guide Floridians on an individualized path to prosperity by focusing on collaboration between the private sector, faith-based community, nonprofits and government entities – breaking down traditional community silos in an effort to maximize resources and uncover opportunities.
Positively Osceola’s thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. DeSantis.
