Cancer battle inspires Wagle to press on

“There’s nothing like being told you’re not going to live very long,” new Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, told Associated Press. “Any of us can die in a car accident tomorrow, and as long as I’m here, and as long as I’m able, I want to continue working. I want to continue being a mom.” Wagle, who has survived multiple bouts of lymphoma since first being diagnosed with cancer in the 1990s, added: “There’s no reason to shut down. That’s an indication of a bad attitude.”
