If you just did a double take on that headline, join the club.
I had no idea Sanders had been diagnosed with cancer, and I am pretty sure most people had no clue.
However, on Friday, Sanders announced that her doctors told her she is cancer-free post-surgery.
Sanders had apparently kept the diagnosis close to the vest.
Her doctor found the cancer during a routine checkup earlier this year.
Surgery was scheduled to remove her thyroid and "surrounding lymph nodes."
Sanders stated, "I want to thank the Arkansas doctors and nurses for their world-class care, as well as my family and friends for their love, prayers, and support.
"I look forward to returning to the campaign trail soon.
"This experience has been a reminder that whatever battle you may be facing, don't lose heart.
"As governor, I will never quit fighting for the people of our great state."

Sanders' doctor, John R. Sims, stated, "I think it's fair to say she's now cancer free, and I don't anticipate any of this slowing her down."
Sanders is expected to be back to her normal schedule within a few days and back out on the campaign trail.
Nothing is a lock, but Sanders is about as close as it comes to one to win the gubernatorial election this November.
