Landra Reid, the wife of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has been diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer and is being treated in Washington, DC.

Reid’s office confirmed the diagnosis this morning when I called. Landra Reid is receiving treatment, including chemotherapy. Reid’s folks emphasized that he is by her side but that his work as majority leader will not be compromised.

Well, stage 2 is better than stage 3 or 4. She might be okay.

Perhaps Mrs. Reid would appreciate prayers, while the Senator appreciates thoughts and concern, assuring us his work will not be compromised.

Breast cancer is horrible, and I hate to see anybody afflicted with it. Prayers for her recovery.

When you read these responses, and then recall what the Democrat responses have been when a Republican's wife has been afflicted, it makes you despise these socialist animals just a touch more, if that's possible.

I wonder if the "progressives" realize the size and depth of the hole they've dug.

As a breast cancer survivor (so far, by the Grace of Almighty God), I hope she is able to stay optimistic and encouraged, and that her general health stays good. She is going onto my prayer list.

Agreed. And that’s to our credit. We can dislike Harry Reid politically but still send our prayers and good wishes to him and his wife.

That’s a nuance which escapes the ability of the liberal mind to comprehend. The liberals look at political opponents at enemies who must be destroyed. We conservatives think of Harry Reid and his ilk as political adversaries, politically idiotic at times, etc. but still recognize that he is a husband and father. He’s a fellow human being who deserves our prayers for his wife, regardless of what we think of him politically.

Landra Reid ....she was born of Jewish parents so all of Harry Reid’s children are Jewish. Four boys one daughter, they are all lawyers in Nevada and one would presume “connected” lawyers like their corrupt father. Like father, like son.

This is sad news and I wish her the best. Her chances are quite good since she is covered by her husband's Cadillac-level heakthcare plan that Congress has for its members. If she was under ObamaCare, rationing, and restrictions, her chances are reduced - how much, no one knows. She has access to prompt diagnostics, access to cutting edge procedures, and experimental treatment. Under an alternate plan, she may be rationed out of existence, or told to take a pill and go home. Sad for her, and really sad for where we're headed.

The devil has trid to stop me but he just can't seem to do it...

Five years ago I had open heart surgery and they removed four aneurysm from my heart two in the front and two in the back....I made a very fast recovery but am still under doctors care..You know I was always in good health and did my workouts every day for an hour a day..but here I am..Doing the same...I feel when God is ready to call me home I will be ready to go..

Anyone that has beast cancer always remember there is so much that has been done with the research and great medical staff..And not to forget our God and our friends..that will be with us all the way..

I don’t mean this as a reflection on his wife or her unfortunate situation, but anyone care to guess the odds that Harry and his allies in the press will try to make political hay out of this?

Stage 2 can be curable, but there are no guarantees. There are many forms of BC; some more aggressive than others. It can depend on the position of the tumor. And, it can come back. Mrs Reid won’t be out of the woods any time soon. =( God love her.

Congrats to the survivors and husbands of survivors. It’s a bear of an illness.

God bless her. My wife first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1981. Radical mastectomy left breast. Lumpectomy with chemo right breast 2002. In between she had a brain tumor the size of a plumb removed in 14 hour surgery. Tumor was benign but lost her hearing on that side and has a gold weight in her eyelid so she can close her eye.

She just helped me build a big woodshed and did most of the heavy lifting because I recently had back surgery. Quite a gal. :-)

Stage 2 is far from a death sentence and she should be able to fight it. Lucky for her, Obamacare isn’t in full operation yet so she will be able to get life saving procedures in a timely fashion.
