(PresidentialWire.com)- Legendary conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh offered an update on his battle with cancer this week, describing how he has the “greatest support system” around him. Limbaugh has been in a battle against late-stage lung cancer since February and has indicated in the past that he isn’t certain he’ll be able to beat it.
In a recent episode of his show, 69-year-old Limbaugh opened up about his experience and discussed how he was thankful to have supportive people around him.
“Now, I mentioned at the beginning of the program that it’s normally at Christmastime that I get all sentimental and thankful about the wonderful things that have happened to me because of you,” he told his listeners.
“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,” he said. “And I think a lot of it is I’ve got the greatest support system at home that you could possibly imagine, unconditional support.”
Limbaugh revealed just how supportive his family were as he continues his cancer battle.
“This circumstance I’m in, stage 4 lung cancer, this is a very, very difficult thing for members of the family,” he explained. “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.”
Owing to Limbaugh’s lung cancer being so advanced, it has spread to other parts of his body. Limbaugh’s treatment is focused not just on the tumors in his lungs, but on stopping the continued spread of cancer through his body.
Earlier this year, however, Limbaugh admitted that his lung cancer was terminal.
Limbaugh has received a constant outpouring of support from conservatives and listeners to his show since announcing his diagnosis earlier this year.
“You are amazing!” radio host Robbie Raugh said on Twitter. “You ARE doing what you were born to do! Thanks for being so real during your battle with Cancer.”
@RealRLimbaugh you are amazing! You ARE doing what you were born to do! Thanks for being so real during your battle with Cancer. We are praying for you and are blessed by you daily! Happy Thanksgiving! May God bless you always! #RushLimbaugh
