Not to be confused with the late Elija Cummings, United States House of Representative for Maryland’s 7th Congressional District and civil rights advocate, Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights icon John Lewis recently announced that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. 

Lewis, 79, has served in Congress since 1986, representing Georgia’ 5th Congressional District.  Celebrated for his fight for civil rights, Lewis is also recognized for joining forces and marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1965 to lead a voting rights march out of Selma, Alabama.

Lewis doesn’t plan on giving up now.  Realizing he will have to miss work and maybe even a few important key votes, he knows he is in the fight of his life with hopes of getting back to the front of the battle lines soon.
