He’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

From his office:

U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) announced today that he has been diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer, a condition that will affect one in six men during the course of their lifetime. Barrow will undergo radiation therapy to treat the condition, and his doctors expect a full recovery. The disease was discovered in a routine screening as part of Barrow’s annual physical exam.

“Cancer is something you never want to hear your doctor say,” said Congressman Barrow. “But I’m very lucky to be living in an age of early detection and effective treatments. The good news is that the doctors expect a full recovery, and the therapy will not affect my ability to work.”

Hopefully that recovery is full and speedy, too.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
