This is so sad. Fox News legend and award-winning journalist Charles Krauthammer just announced he has only weeks to live.
The Harvard medical school grad has cancer and thought he had it beat.
“I’ve been uncharacteristically silent these past 10 months,” Krauthammer wrote in a letter read on air on Fox News Friday.
“I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me. In August of last year, I underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in my abdomen. That operation was thought to have been a success, but it caused a cascade secondary complications — which I have been fighting in the hospital ever since. It was a long and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health.
“However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it’s aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors say the best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live, this is the final verdict. My fight is over. I wish to thank my doctors and caregivers whose efforts have been magnificent. My dear friends, who have given my a lifetime of memories and whose support has sustained me through these difficult months. And all of my partners at The Washington Post, Fox News and Crown Publishing.”
“Lastly, I thank my colleagues, my readers, and my viewers, who have made my career possible and gave consequence to my life’s work. I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate is a noble undertaking. I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny.”
“I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life–full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”
