On his far right and deplorable radio show, Rush Limbaugh announced he has advanced lung cancer.
“This day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory for me. I’ve known this moment is coming in the program… I’m sure that you all know by now that I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t like making things about me,” Limbaugh said. “I like this program to be about you and the things that matter to all of us.”
“I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer,” Limbaugh said, adding that his diagnosis was confirmed by “two medical institutions back on January 20.”
Limbaugh said he first realized something was wrong on his birthday weekend last month.
“I thought about not telling anybody; I thought about doing this without anybody knowing, because I don’t like making things about me,” Limbaugh said. “But there are going to be days when I’m not able to be here because I’m undergoing treatment or I’m reacting to treatment.”
