South Dakota Republican Party encourages prayers for former South Dakota First Lady Jean Rounds, wife of US Senator Mike Rounds
In a press release yesterday, U.S. Senator Mike Rounds announced that his wife, former First Lady Jean Rounds, will begin cancer treatment as a result of being diagnosed with a malignant high-grade aggressive tumor near her sciatic nerve.
According to the Senator, following consultation with her doctors in South Dakota, Mike and Jean will travel to Rochester, Minnesota, this week to begin her treatment at The Mayo Clinic.
In response, South Dakota Republican Party Chairman Dan Lederman asked that South Dakotans keep the Rounds family in their prayers as Jean undergoes treatment. “I’d ask that we all please pray for Jean’s speedy return to health, as well as for strength and grace for the entire extended Rounds family as they support their wife, mother and grandmother in her time of illness.”
