Millions of Americans were shocked when conservative icon Rush Limbaugh announced on Monday that he’s battling an advanced form of lung cancer.
“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,” Limbaugh said. “I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down. The upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.”
