    Rush Limbaugh just announced he has advanced lung cancer

    Long time advocate for the constitution including our gun rights just announced he has advanced lung cancer.
    Hope he can make a recovery. He was a very influential proponent for our rights.

    I read it on his 24/7 website, it's a genuine announcement. "Advanced" generally means that it's a cancer that cannot be cured.

    Leaves me feeling empty. I hope that Rush can drop the microphone for extended periods, and go for quality time w the fam and friends. I also wish him some freedom from the bad symptoms, and a long time as possible here on earth.

    As a long time Rush listener that is worrying news, hoping for a speedy remission.

    You know he is a true patriot. With all the medical issues he has had over the years he still stays on the air fighting the good fight.
    You know he does not need the money, I am sure he has more than he could possibly spend in his lifetime.

    Not much of a Rush fan here, but far less of a cancer fan. He's in for a battle.

    As others here I am a Rush fan. My family wishes him all the best. Like many we can only wait and see how this will go. Rush was the first to say what many have been feeling for decades. He has not let us down so lets not let him down.

    He didn't ask for it here, but I'm gonna give him a bunch until he squeals and says, "UNCLE."

    Praying for Rush and the family.

    Sad, wish him well.
    Last week we got a call from my wife's Brother that his Misses was diagnosed with lung cancer.
    Turns out stage 1. Thank the Lord.
    2 in a week, hope that stuff about happening in 3's is BS.
    Cancer treatments today are so much more successful than just 15 years ago.
    Bless all.

    Not good since it's a late stage cancer. All he can do is get aggressive treatment and hope for the best.
