Rush Limbaugh has been diagnosed with “advanced lung cancer,” the conservative radio host announced on his show Monday. 
“The one thing that I know, that has happened over the 31 plus years… is that there has been an incredible bond that has developed between all of you and me,” Limbaugh said. “It is a family-type relationship to me, and I’ve mentioned to you that this program — this job — is what has provided me the greatest satisfaction and happiness that I’ve ever experienced, more than I ever thought that I would experience.””So, I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you. It’s a struggle for me because I had to inform my staff earlier today,” he said. “… I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down with this. But the upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.”
Limbaugh said he first realized something was wrong on his birthday, January 12. He had the diagnosis confirmed by “two medical institutions” later that month, he said.He considered keeping the diagnosis a secret, he said, but changed his mind after realizing he would have to miss his syndicated talk show to undergo treatment. “It is what it is. You know me I’m the mayor of real-ville 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.”This story is developing. Check back for updates.
