INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): Wednesday afternoon, State Senator Sue Landske (R-Cedar Lake) announced she has been diagnosed with lung cancer.

"Understandably this is a very personal issue,” Landske said. “However, I've worked hard throughout my tenure at the State Senate to be upfront and honest with my constituents, and in that spirit I wanted the public to know about my health condition. I'll continue to serve Hoosiers as long as I'm healthy enough to do so, and plan on taking each day one step at a time. I appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers and want to thank all of you for your support during this time.”

Landske will begin treatments immediately and her doctors are confident that she will make a full recovery. Landske has no plans to step away from her official duties in the Indiana Senate, and plans to continue serving her constituents in northern Indiana.
