Beaver County Commissioner Sandie Egley has undergone treatment for skin cancer. Egley revealed today she had multiple surgeries to remove melanomas discovered by her doctor on her leg and face.
Egley said the surgeries were a success and her doctor has declared her cured of the cancer.
“I have routine screenings once a year because I’ve had a prior diagnosis,” Egley told BeaverCountian.com. “Melanoma can be deadly, that’s why I keep my regular appointments each year.”
Egley said she had one of those routine doctor visits scheduled just before the county elections earlier this month. Egley did not run for reelection of her commissioner seat, opting instead to appear on the ballot for the office of county treasurer. She won her election.
