CARSON CITY – March 18, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement in response to Nevada Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson’s prostate cancer diagnosis.

“The First Lady and I are so glad to hear our dear friend Jason is doing well after outpatient surgery for prostate cancer Wednesday. Our thoughts remain with him and his family, and we are grateful to hear that he feels good and will be returning to the legislature next week.

I also want to thank Speaker Frierson for reminding all Nevadans to schedule regular screening checkups with their doctors so early treatment and detection can be possible. His willingness to use his personal health situation as an opportunity to raise awareness to his fellow Nevadans demonstrates the selfless public servant that he is. Kathy and I remain grateful for his leadership during this time and ask all Nevadans to join us in sending him and his family well wishes for a speedy recovery.”
