Pennsylvania State Representative Russ Diamond has announced that he has prostate cancer.

He released the statement on his "Treatable Cancer Diagnosis" on Thursday, June 9.

The statement reads in part:

“Beth and I recently learned I have treatable prostate cancer that was thankfully detected early. My doctors made the diagnosis after regular checkups and screenings revealed abnormalities."

His first treatment for the cancer happened that same day, “and (he) will be working from home and voting remotely during (his) recovery," according to the release.

He encouraged the public to get regular screenings too and concluded:

"Beth and I would covet your prayers at this time.”

The exact staging of his cancer was not released.

Diamond has represented Pennsylvania's 102 District since 2014 and lost a bid for lieutenant governor of the state in May 2022, according to public records.
