In September, Klobuchar revealed she was diagnosed with Stage 1A breast cancer in February following a mammogram at the Mayo Clinic. Shortly thereafter, she underwent surgery to remove some of the cancer before being put on radiation treatment.
In August, doctors determined that the treatment went well.
