America is on the verge of losing another one of its patriots.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh made the heartbreaking announcement that he might have to give up his show because his battle with lung cancer is so bad that “he can’t walk five steps without having to stop and sit down,” according to the Daily Mail.
Limbaugh, 69, first announced he was sick in February, three days before President Trump presented him with the Medal of Freedom.
His Condition Is Getting Worse
In a statement to his fans on his popular radio show, Limbaugh confirmed that he’s on his 3rd wave of treatment, and that his condition is a lot worse than it once was:
“I’m in the third wave of treatment now. There have been many cycles but this is the third wave and, this current wave, I have to tell you is kicking my a*s.”
And not only is his condition getting worse, but he also revealed one treatment ‘that works in 97 percent of patients’ did not work with him because of a ‘one-percent mutation’:
“That one percent mutation is theorized to nullify the second phase of treatment that we tried.”
As a result of his worsening condition, Rush Limbaugh told his fans to get prepared, because in possibly a few days, weeks, or years, he won’t be able to do his show anymore:
“The day is going to come where I’m not going to be able to be here and I’m hoping that it is months, years. I’m hoping the cycle that we’re in does its magic, but the day is going to come that it won’t be possible to be here every day. Any chance to do the show, I’m gonna take it.”
Limbaugh said ‘these are extremely challenging times for me, medically’ but added that it’s ‘nothing that millions of you haven’t gone through or aren’t going through’.
Limbaugh announced some of the broadcasts may have to be replaced with best-of shows or stand-in hosts if he can’t make it to the golden mic.
“I didn’t realize how much physical and mental energy [the program demands]. I hope that it doesn’t happen… and I’m not making any excuses.”
A True Patriot
There’s a reason President Donald Trump gave Limbaugh the presidential Medal of Freedom.
Throughout his 30+ years of radio broadcasting, Limbaugh has defended liberty throughout a majority of his career. He’s become a national icon, and completely revolutionized politcal talkshow radio.
It was even recently reported that Donald Trump investigated starting his own radio show, but that he didn’t want to compete with Limbaugh because he was so good at what he did.
And although we might sometimes forget to appreciate men like Limbaugh for the services that they provide for America, we can never forget their affect on people’s hearts.
We will always love Rush Limbaugh. And we, and the staff at Liberty News Alerts, prays that he can beat this battle with cancer.
