Wagle to get award from KU Cancer Center

February 6, 2013


— The Kansas University Cancer Center on Thursday will present its 2013 Leadership Award to Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle for her support of cancer research, therapies and prevention.

Wagle, R-Wichita, has survived two bouts with lymphoma and recently underwent chemotherapy treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

She was given a clean bill of health from her physician last fall and was elected by her colleagues in December as Senate president.

A presentation to Wagle will be made in the Statehouse at 8:20 a.m. by KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and Dr. Roy Jensen, KU Cancer Center director.

But she'll do her damndest to make sure that if you are poor, you get no access to cancer screening tests, and once you get cancer, the treatment will be very expensive and likely futile.

Bozo, You have confused Wagle with (barf) Kathleen Sibilus, who is cutting cancer (breast, prostate) screening to Medicare patients and is establishing a rationing board for the rest of us. Your hate is peeping through at the expense of your knowledge.

Obamacare has many, many deficiencies, but I always find it amusing that if critics like you had your way, the healthcare system would be even worse, exclude even more people from access to it, and dramatically increase the very real rationing that has existed in this country for a long time. What sort of hate drives that impulse?

"Susan Wagle is a Republican member of the Kansas Senate representing Kansas' 30th district since 2001. Wagle was the Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor in 2006, with running mate State Senator Jim Barnett. She gained national recognition for her opposition to a human sexuality class at the University of Kansas and her unsuccessful campaign to eliminate funding for the University's school of social welfare. She sits on the board [1] of the American Legislative Affairs Council, a group known for pushing controversial[2] "stand-your-ground" laws across the U.S. that have come under more scrutiny in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida, a state that has passed such a law.[3]"

Isn't she also the cause of the 'intelligent design' Board of Education embarrassment fiasco???

Good choice KU.

Nothing like Thanking someone for being completely against what you stand for. She received an award from a Public University at the same time they(Kansas Legislature) cut funding for all public schools and They don't want new Doctors to be taught medical procedures that might save a women's life.At least she supports and has benefited from cancer Treatment and therapy as well as Research FROM a Public University. Outstanding!
