Another U.S. Congressman has cancer. Senator Bob Casey Jr., a Democrat representing Pennsylvania, announced he has prostate cancer on Jan. 5.

In his statement, Casey, 62, said his cancer diagnosis came as a shock.

“Last month, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” Casey said. “While this news came as a shock, I can report that I have an excellent prognosis, as well as the benefit of exceptional medical care and the unwavering support of my family.”

Casey’s statement comes after Congressman Jamie Raskin announced he has a “serious but curable” form of blood cancer on Dec. 28. Raskin is a Democrat who represents Maryland’s 8th congressional district.

“After several days of tests, I have been diagnosed with Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma, which is a serious but curable form of cancer,” said Raskin, 60. “I am about to embark on a course of chemo-immunotherapy on an outpatient basis at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. Prognosis for most people in my situation is excellent after four months of treatment.”

Raskin is a member of the House committees investigating the Jan. 6 protests at the U.S. Capitol Building.

Casey and Raskin are the latest sitting Congress members diagnosed with cancer.

Virginia Congressman Donald McEachin, a Democrat, died from colorectal cancer in November at age 61.
