(NewsReady.com) – After one full year of hiding his illness from the world, Rep. Jim Hagedorn (R-MN) has revealed the fact that he’s been fighting against stage four kidney cancer since February 15, 2019.
Today my husband MN-01 Congressman Jim Hagedorn, announced he was diagnosed on February 15, 2019, with stage four kidney cancer.

Hagedorn hasn’t missed a single vote due to his illness during all of that time. On the contrary, he said that he feels great and will continue to perform his role in Congress as if he weren’t sick at all. He was diagnosed with cancer just two months after he married his wife, Jennifer.
Meanwhile, the congressman has been receiving the support of his family as well as from House Republicans at large.
With his re-election coming up for 2020, Hagedorn is just as ready to stay in his current position as he was the day he was elected.
