Rush Limbaugh tells his listeners he has cancer

Tuesday 04 February, 2020

One of America’s most influential broadcasters, Rush Limbaugh, has told listeners he has “advanced lung cancer”
 
Following discomfort and a shortness of breath, Limbaugh had the diagnosis confirmed by two doctors in January, and he will now take time away from his syndicated program to seek treatment.
 
The Rush Limbaugh Show has been in syndication for 31 years, and Rush only recently penned a new deal that will take him well into this decade.
 
He told his listeners, “I wish I didn’t have to tell you this, and I thought about not telling anybody. I thought about trying to do this without anybody knowing, ’cause I don’t like making things about me.
 
"But there are going to be days that I’m not gonna be able to be here because I’m undergoing treatment or I’m reacting to treatment, and I know that that would inspire all kinds of curiosity with people wondering what’s going on.

"So this has happened, and my intention is to come here every day I can and to do this program as normally and as competently and as expertly as I do each and every day, because that is the source of my greatest satisfaction professionally, personally. I’ve had so much support from family and friends during this that it’s just been tremendous."
