Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, age 57, is conservative and the host of Your World. He is well-liked by millions of viewers, but he has suffered from multiple sclerosis for two decades and recently dealt with cancer.
Now, he is off the air, trying to recover after major open-heart surgery this week.
A source at Fox News has confirmed that all went as planned on Monday, so far.
The source opined, “Knowing Neil, he’ll be back as soon as he can, but he is slated to return to hosting his three programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network later this year.”
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto is on the mend following open heart surgery.
“Neil Cavuto had open heart surgery yesterday and came through it with flying colors,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Knowing Neil, he’ll be back as soon as he can, but he is slated to return to hosting his three programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network later this year. Everyone here is wishing him a speedy recovery.”
Cavuto hasn’t been on air since May 31 and underwent surgery on Monday.
As Cauvto shared in a 2007 interview, “So I take steroids, and weekly injections, and I exercise my legs a great deal. A big and common fear with this disease is that eventually you lose use of your legs. In fact, my neurologist is surprised I haven’t already.”
Cavuto added, “Having had cancer right before by MS diagnosis, I can honestly say MS is worse. There’s no endgame here, no cure here, no concoction of chemotherapy or radiation that could make it all go away here.”
Let us all pray for Cavuto, as we want him to recover without health complications. We want to see him back on the air soon!
