In 2005, Sen. Scheid was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and she has undergone chemotherapy treatments on and off since then. In early May of this year, her treatments became ineffective and in consultation with her doctors and family, she decided to stop her chemotherapy treatments.
Sen. Scheid was first elected to the Senate in 1996, following previous terms in the House and has loved her years in the Legislature. She cares deeply for the people of Minnesota, and has dedicated much of her legislative career to the young people of Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center.
Constituents are invited to share their thoughts and well wishes on Sen. Scheid’s Caring Bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lindascheid and her Facebook page
