Is Ann Romney an inspiration?
As First Lady of Massachusetts, she served as the governor's liaison
for federal faith-based initiatives. She was involved in a number of
children's charities, including Operation Kids, and was an active participant in her husband's 2008 presidential run,
where she became the most visible of all the Republican candidates'
wives in campaigning. She has continued campaigning on her husband's
behalf during his 2012 presidential bid.
Ann was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
in 1998 and has credited a mixture of mainstream and alternative
treatments with giving her a lifestyle mostly without limitations. In
one of those activities, equestrianism, she has consequently received recognition in dressage as an adult amateur at the national level and competed professionally in Grand Prix as well. In 2008, she was also diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ, a non-invasive type of breast cancer. She underwent a lumpectomy in December of the same year and has since been cancer-free.
She and husband Mitt have five children, all boys, born between 1970 and 1981.
