I am devastated😢😢😢😢
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. #goodtrouble

Statement from Rep. John Lewis' office re: undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer. “I have been in some kind of fight – for freedom, equality, basic human rights – for nearly my entire life. I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now." https://t.co/16gYmmn7Qr

John Lewis is a goddamn American hero, and I will never forgive the Berners who booed him at the 2016 convention. I will go to my grave bitter about that. https://t.co/GWSrjGS374

Reason #3735 why #JohnLewis is an American hero:
In 2016, he called out @BernieSanders for being absent from the civil rights fight over the last 50 years.

Very saddened to learn that the great Congressman and Civil Rights Champion, Representative #JohnLewis, has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
I am praying for him and encouraged by the knowledge that he is a legendary fighter.
Fight on, sir. pic.twitter.com/2bLNb8Vs2e

If there’s one thing I love about @RepJohnLewis, it’s his incomparable will to fight. I know he’s got a lot more of that left in him. Praying for you, my friend.
