Rush Limbaugh let his audience in on this scary secret about his health

In February, Rush Limbaugh announced doctors diagnosed him with advanced stage lung cancer.

For months, listeners wondered how Limbaugh’s battle against the disease was proceeding.

And now Rush Limbaugh let his audience in on this scary secret about his health.

Rush Limbaugh provides occasional updates on his battle with cancer.

On Monday Limbaugh provided a progress report that made it clear just how serious his situation was.

Limbaugh used a baseball analogy to explain that he was in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs after his first two treatment attempts were “failures” and “nearly killed him.”

“The first two attempts to deal with the cancer failed. One was a targeted therapy of clinical trial drugs, which worked but nearly killed me in the process. And so we had to get off of those. But that at-bat showed me I could hit the pitch. I wasn’t gonna strike out. I was at least able to make contact. We had some hope that there would be a remedy,” Limbaugh stated.

But while Limbaugh said the first two treatments were failures one showed promise and that Limbaugh now was in a position to force “extra innings” and extend his fight with lung cancer.

“I am currently on second base hoping to slide into third and eventually make it all the way home. We’re in the bottom of the ninth. If I get all the way home we get extra innings. And that’s what we’re shooting for here. Another reason why I chose baseball — football and basketball have a clock and they end. Baseball doesn’t. Baseball goes as long as the game is tied. Right now I am tied. I need to round the bases and score. I need, however it happens, I need to either steal third, I need to steal home. The guy hitting behind me needs to come up with something,” Limbaugh added.

Doctors diagnosed Limbaugh with advanced stage lung cancer earlier this year.

And while the situation is dire, Limbaugh refuses to accept it as a death sentence.

The host thanked his audience for their prayers and did note that an optimistic mindset was an important aspect of this fight.

  3. Well Rush, I will tell you that miracles do happen and I’m living and breathing to prove it. 2004 I was diagnosed with incurable liver cancer (still no cure today). I underwent chemo for 2 years until I was able to have a transplant. LONG, LONG story about transplant. I have been cancer free since the transplant and celebrated 14 more years given to me by God, in April. So if God saved a wretch like me, he surely can save YOU. Blessings to you and BELIEVE every day of your life.

  4. James, you are truly a very sad and sick excuse for a human being. Rush will be with Jesus when he dies. But it is clear that from your sick comment that satan is your master. Jesus forbids your extreme hatred and lies. But He loves you and will be there if you ever want Him

  7. The first time I heard Rush on the radio was in the late 1960’s on the Bob Grant show. When he started his own radio show I listened every time I could. But when he started talking about his cigar smoking I said to myself..”he is playing with fire!!”

  15. Hey James tell me what lies has he told? What conspiracies has he told that weren’t proven correct? You spew hatred and statements that you can not back up. So sad an individual you must be in your life… So Sad…

  16. Rush
    Hurry up, can’t wait for your game to end . Hope you remember all the lies and conspiracy crap you told so you could line your pocket with money. Was it worth it, hope it all comes back to you on your death bed. You spread fear now you can die afraid you coward.

  17. Rush…
    The best to you.
    You are in our prayers.

    Peter..I do feel sorry for you. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live with such vindictiveness.

  18. Only Jesus knows your future and has your
    Healing. Asking him for his mercy on you
    And this country. You have been a voice
    Crying in the street for America to return to
    It’s beginning with God.

  19. A thimble full of what Rush has brought to the American people dwarfs the drivel of leftist rhetoric. Having a good outlook is key in this fight you are in. May God bless in all that you do.

  20. Rush I’ve been listening to you since you were on 77 talk radio your in my prayers and thoughts and in the trust of God this will pass keep the Faith

  21. Peter, extremist views??? No. It is you who does not agree with his views so you call them extremist, which they are not. And read your own comment to see hatred.

  22. You know Rush God is in control and right now he isn’t finished with you yet plus he doesn’t have a room for you with this virus, keep a positive attitude about this disease and keep praying for healing. God does answer prayers and you have a lot of them out there praying for you. God bless you and keep you safe.
