Rush Limbaugh Reveals He Might End Radio Show After Cancer Condition Worsens


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.”

Saying Goodbye

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.

    Rush, I send the prayers you so need at this time of life. We all feel so invincible our whole lives and Bam!! So many of us have COPD as they call it now. And it is hard when one shrinks and not enough room for the lungs to expand as needed let alone the diseases that come along. Prayers for you.

      Joanne, yes Rush did indeed he was a smoker & has said many times, “I am looking at my formally nicotine-stained fingers”. Millions of his fans are taking this set-back with a great deal of chagrin! As am i.

    It took me a long time to appreciate Rush and what he was doing for our country. Now I don’t
    know how I will live without hearing his voice and his explanation of the “Real Story”. My
    husband was a devoted fan for many years, now he is gone, the thought of losing Rush too,
    breaks my heart again.

    Our many prayers go with you in your battle with this cancer and we pray for you to win, but if God takes you, to me, it will mean you have accomplished your mission on earth and He has another job for you in Heaven.

    Rush, you have been a national hero to me for so many years. I am so saddened that you are suffering and cannot do the job you have been excellent at and loved for so many years. You are a true American patriot and an inspiration to so many of us through thick and thin. You have taught me more than I could ever imagine. I began listening when my husband and I lived in Houston, but built a ranch out in the Texas hill country and we would tune you in on our drive in 1989 when we were still building there. I have been an avid listener since then. May God protect you and keep you from suffering, may He give you peace and restore your health. I pray that you do not suffer pain and discomfort and I pray that the treatments will be beneficial in the long run. We Rush warriors will always have your back. Love you Rush for teaching us the facts.

Our many prayers, good wishes and thoughts go to you. Know we all love you so very much. Thank you again!!!! I can still remember when I first heard you out of Sacramento thinking, knowing you were sent from God!!!! We all needed you then—we need you more today!!! My wife has written already!!!

    The program itself is rather easy to follow. All the user
    needs to do is commit to daily listening sessions for the audio included.

    However, many people may be hesitant because they may find it
