The following article, Herman Cain Passes Away At 74 After Lengthy Battle With Coronavirus, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Former 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has passed away at the age of 74 from a month long battle with coronavirus.
Cain, who is also the former CEO of a pizza business, died on Thursday monring at an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been admitted with the illness and placed on oxygen support for several weeks.
The announcement of Cain’s passing came via Dan Calabrese, who edits the Newsmax website.
Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:
“Herman Cain — our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us — has passed away,” Calabrese said in the blog post. “We all prayed so hard every day. We knew the time would come when the Lord would call him home, but we really liked having him here with us, and we held out hope he’d have a full recovery.”
Cain was diagnosed with the coronavirus less than two weeks after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cain was photographed at the event without wearing a mask, but it’s unclear if that’s where he contracted the virus.
Cain, a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, was co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump and was considered for the Federal Reserve by President Trump. He was at a higher risk to contract the coronavirus virus given his age and cancer history.
The former presidential candidate was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2006, and even though the awful disease spread to his liver, he managed to defeat it and was cancer-free for all of these years.
Tragic to see someone like Cain, who is somewhat of an icon for black conservatives, taken out so savagely by this awful illness. Folks, as much as we fight against the hysteria for coronavirus — and we should — there needs to be balance in the approach.
This illness is serious business and a healthy respect for its capabilities is essential to getting it under control.
