Very sorry to hear this.
Mike Anderson, Harris County’s district attorney, informed his staff Thursday that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
“I have great doctors and am undergoing treatment. I fully intend to beat this,” said a brief email sent Thursday and signed “Mike.”
“Many people have asked how they can help me. I would ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers and continue to do the great work that you’re doing to make this the best DA’s office in these United States.”
Sara Marie Kinney, a spokeswoman for the office, released the email and said no other details were available, including the type of cancer and how long the elected district attorney has had it.
