Government Senator, Dr. Saphire Longmore, has won her battle with cancer.
Dr. Longmore is a medical practitioner and a former beauty queen. She announced a year ago that she was fighting the dreaded disease.
Dr. Longmore declared herself cancer-free in a post this week on social media. She noted that she was going through the final stages of treatment to reduce the likelihood of the disease returning.
The disease and treatment had resulted in Senator Longmore cutting short her attendance during several sittings of the upper house of parliament.
Senate President, Tom Tavares Finson, welcomed Dr. Longmore back shortly after the resumption of senate proceedings today.
