(RightIsRight.co) – In a sudden turn of events marking the sad loss of a true American, Republican Senator John Barrasso from Wyoming shared the news that his wife, Bobbi Barrasso, passed away after a long fight against cancer.
In a heartfelt statement mentioned by Punch Bowl News’ Max Cohen, Senator Barrasso praised his wife’s bravery and dedication to their home state. “After a courageous battle with cancer, Bobbi is now at peace and at home with the Lord. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Bobbi was a leader, fierce advocate for Wyoming, and friend to everyone she met,” he said.
Bobbi Barrasso had faced serious health challenges before, including surgery in 2022 to remove a lesion in her brain, as reported by Wyoming News. Her fight with cancer was not new, as she had previously battled breast cancer.
Bobbi was deeply involved in cancer awareness and support activities. She actively participated in events organized by Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and Komen Wyoming, as noted by Meridian.
Beyond her cancer advocacy, Bobbi Barrasso took a significant step in addressing another critical issue—suicide prevention. She founded “Congressional Spouses for Suicide Prevention and Education,” an initiative aimed at raising awareness and saving lives.
