Florida first lady Casey DeSantis recently spoke up in defense of her husband, Gov. Ron DeSantis, sharing details about his support when she was fighting breast cancer.
"I get asked all the time, 'Who is Ron DeSantis?'" Casey DeSantis says in the ad for her husband Ron DeSantis.
"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," Casey said.
"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," she said before speaking about more heavy part of their life, which happened recently.
"But 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. He was there to pick me off of the ground when I literally could not stand. He was there to fight for me when I didn’t have the strength to fight for myself," she said.
"That is who Ron DeSantis is," she adds at the end of an emotional moment.

"DeSantis first announced his wife’s cancer diagnosis a year ago, in October 2021, but he was optimistic from the beginning, emphasizing the importance of trusting in God," reported Breitbart.
"I think the one common theme that I’ve taken away is, when you trust in God, when you have the positive attitude, and when you know there’s going to be good days and bad days but you’re not going to be denied getting to the light at the end of the tunnel, that’s when we have the best success stories," the governor said.
