Living with late stage cancer, Rush thanks supporters for “one of the greatest lives anyone could have”

Struggling with late stage lung cancer, conservative Icon Rush Limbaugh thanked his supporters for “one of the greatest lives anyone could have.”

Rush Limbaugh, who was awarded the medal of freedom by President Trump, said “this year especially has been incredible. (pause) There were days I didn’t think I would be here on this date. There were days that I thought if I was here, I wouldn’t be doing this. But I’m alive and kicking and thriving. And I think a lot of it is I’ve got the greatest support system at home that you could possibly imagine, unconditional support.”

He continued “and this is very hard. This circumstance I’m in, stage 4 lung cancer, this is a very, very difficult thing for members of the family. It’s scary. It’s scary for all kinds of reasons; the unknown. And it’s day-to-day scary. And yet I am greeted each day with the best efforts that everybody in my life is making to be happy and normal, while acknowledging the reality, not dwelling on it, focusing on the goodness that exists each day. And there is goodness in everything that happens. It may not be immediately apparent, but it’s there. And it’ll eventually reveal itself. It always does.”

Rush later said “I owe so many people so much. I’m never gonna be able to adequately thank the people who are responsible for one of the greatest lives anybody could have. I am doing what I was born to do. It was what I wanted to do since I was 8 years old. I have met the goals I set for myself. I’ve maintained them. And I have been able to do it all, for the most part, on my terms. It cannot get any better. I have been so thankful for the blessings that I have and to be able to share all of this with you and tell you how grateful I am, how gratified I am that you have made this possible.”

After telling listeners he was taking a little extended Thanksgiving break but would be back Monday, he concluded “Thank you again, folks. Bottom of my heart, bottom of our hearts here at the EIB Network. And we look forward to being back here a week from yesterday.”
