Congressional Candidate Kwasman Reveals He Has Cancer

Posted By on Thu, Aug 14, 2014 at 10:19 AM

Rebekah L. Sanders of the Arizona Republic reports that state Rep. Adam Kwasman, one of three Republicans vying for the chance to take on Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick in CD1, has a blood cancer:


dam Kwasman, a candidate in the 1st District, says he has a slow-growing blood cancer that was caught early, has presented no symptoms and will likely require no treatment for at least a decade. The cancer is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Kwasman, 31, said he learned he had cancer last year, just before launching his campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives. He said he did not tell the public because it has not affected him.

"I have cancer but I'm not sick," Kwasman said in an interview with The Arizona Republic. "I still go to the gym three times a week."
