Coburn, 65, is undergoing evaluation and treatment for a recurrence of prostate cancer that required surgery in 2011. As a threetime cancer survivor and a licensed physician, Coburn knows the drill.
Taking time off from work might seem logical, but after his 2011 surgery, Coburn was back in Washington, D.C., a few days later to cast votes on the Senate floor.
Senator, we admire your sense of duty and loyalty while representing Oklahoma, but don’t hurry this time. We all know Washington’s time clock is different than ours and little, if anything, gets done as scheduled. We’re also wishing you a speedy recovery.
