SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Former Hewlett-Packard Co. Chief Executive Carly Fiorina has been diagnosed with breast cancer, a top aide said Tuesday.

Fiorina was diagnosed with the disease Feb. 20 and underwent surgery Monday at Stanford Hospital, her chief of staff, Deborah Bowker, told The Associated Press. Bowker said the surgery was successful and Fiorina has an “excellent” prognosis for a full recovery.

With any luck, this was caught early enough (the ‘excellent’ is reassuring news): regardless, our thoughts, prayers, and good wishes go out to her, her family, and loved ones. In times of trouble, it is the support of those who know us best that sustains; may she have that support for as long as she needs it.
