After finding out she has breast cancer, Nevada Secretary of State, Barbara Cegavske, 64, states, "I never once thought about leaving Nevada for treatment. I've worked with doctors here for 18 years in the Legislature, I have faith in them." Dr. Josette Spotts, Cegavske's surgeon here at Comprehensive Cancer Centers in Las Vegas, said "the risk of recurrence is extremely small." We wish her a speedy recovery.
Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske didn't have to go public with her recently diagnosed breast cancer. She's not taking that much time off. But on Friday she sat with me at her home and explained why it was important to speak out and why she decided to stay in Las Vegas for treatment instead of leaving the state.
