WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement in response to former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole’s announcement of being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer:
“I am saddened to hear that Kansas Senator Bob Dole has been diagnosed with cancer. Sen. Dole is someone I respect as a leader and consider a friend to me and Robba. We are praying for him and Sen. Elizabeth Dole as they tackle this new challenge. I know I speak for Kansans when I say we are all thinking of Sen. Dole and wishing him comfort and healing.
“Bob, as you face the news of this illness, I am reminded of the words from your favorite song.
“Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone.”
