Rush Limbaugh Gives A Sobering Update On His Cancer Battle: ‘Just Waking Up Is A Blessing’

Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh says that he is relying on prayer during his battle with lung cancer.

Limbaugh says says the disease has made him feel ‘virtually worthless’

Limbaugh, 69, announced that he had advanced lung cancer earlier this year. He now says his latest round of treatment has left him “virtually worthless.”

Limbaugh said that these days, “just waking up” is a blessing.

“There have been many cycles, but this is the third wave, and this current wave, I have to tell you, is kicking my ass,” Limbaugh said Tuesday on his national radio program.

‘Just waking up is a blessing’

Limbaugh added that all his energy has gone into resting and recuperating from the treatment.

“Every day, I wake up and the first thing I do is thank God that I did,” he said. “Just waking up is a blessing.”


The radio icon said that prayer is sustaining him.

“I know many of you are praying daily and nightly,” he explained. “I happen to believe that [prayers] work. I believe that they are sustaining me, and I pray for the energy to be able to do this. … I have to be honest: I do not have the energy that I used to have.”

What Will Happen to Rush’s Radio Show?

Limbaugh admitted that  his nationally syndicated radio program might not go on much longer.

“My attitude is this — and the reality is — the day is gonna come where I’m not gonna be able to be here,” Limbaugh said. “I don’t know when that is, and I’m hoping that it is months, years. I’m hoping that the current cycle [of treatment] that we’re in does its magic and starts working on the tumor as the clinical trial drugs did.”

“But regardless, the day is gonna come where it isn’t gonna be possible to be here every day, and who knows? It may not be possible to be here for three hours a day” he added.

“Any chance to do the show,” Limbaugh continued, “I’m gonna take it.”
