Team DeSantis has released a new ad —and it’s a bit of a tearjerker.
In the ad, Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis talks about who her husband really is and how he stepped up big during her battle with cancer.
“I get asked all the time, who is Ron De Santis?” the Florida first lady asked. “He’s the kid who grew up right here in Florida working his tail off paying his own way through school and volunteering to serve in the Navy and deploying to Iraq. He’s the man who I fell in love with from the moment we met. And he’s the dad of three very rambunctious, energetic children: Mamie, our two-year-old little comedian, Madison, our beautiful sweet five-year-old, and Mason, our four-year-old athlete.”
“If you want to know who Ron DeSantis really is, when I was diagnosed with cancer, and I was facing the battle for my life, he was the dad who took care of my children when I couldn’t,” Casey DeSantis said.
“He was there to pick me off of the ground when I literally could not stand,” she added. “He was there to fight for me when I didn’t have the strength to fight for myself.”

From The Daily Wire:
DeSantis first announced that the state’s first lady was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 4, 2021. She underwent six rounds of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.
Casey DeSantis traveled across Florida to visit cancer patients, promote the importance of early screening, and provide support to families affected by cancer, with a specific emphasis on pediatric cancer patients. In August, she launched Florida Cancer Connect.
During her own battle with cancer, she realized the need for additional resources for patients and caretakers to access information on cancer care, detection, prevention, and treatment. The Florida Cancer Connect website provides those battling cancer with tools and information to bring greater awareness to cancer.
