Want to show support for Secretary of State Kim Wyman following her cancer diagnosis? Just put on a pair of silly socks.
In a Monday newsletter, Wyman wrote that people have been asking how they can show their support. The answer came to her during a recent MRI.
“I had to sit completely still and look at nothing but my feet. I happened to be wearing a pair of neon socks and thought how cool it would be to see other people’s fun socks as well,” Wyman wrote.
She asks that Washingtonians put on their silliest socks, take a photo and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #wymanrocksthesocks. Or email sock photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wyman, 54, is undergoing treatment for colon cancer. She expects to make a full recovery after chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
Wyman, a Republican, was elected secretary of state in 2012 and won re-election in 2016. From 2012 to 2016, she was the only Republican elected to statewide office on the West Coast.
Before becoming secretary of state, Wyman was county auditor for Thurston County.
