West Broward Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz won her personal battle against breast cancer, and in the war against the disease, she just won a purple heart. Last night in Washington, D.C., during a softball game whose proceeds went to breast cancer, Wasserman Schultz fractured her leg and sprained her ankle while sliding into second base.
A former varsity softball player, the game was Wasserman Schultz's idea. Said her press secretary, Jonathan Beeton: "She is doing well and is in good spirits, given the overwhelming success of the game, which was organized to raise money for the Young Survivors Coalition."
More than $41,000 in fact, which probably gives that All-Star game higher stakes than this one. Wasserman Schultz and her fellow members of Congress lost the game, 14-8, to a team of congressional staffers.
