“The scans did show some progression of cancer […] It’s not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction,” Rush explained on an episode of The Rush Limbaugh Show in late 2020.
“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over […] Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it,” he explained later on.
The conservative show host missed tapings in October 2020 to receive treatment.
It’s understood that the treatment proved to be successful during the earlier stages, but in October 2020, Rush received devastating news about unexpected developments and stated that this was no longer the case.
“Now, prior […], the scans had shown that we had rendered the cancer dormant. That’s my phrase for it. We had stopped the growth. It had been reduced, and it had become manageable […],” he told Fox News.
The fear of dying began to imbue his day-to-day life, he remarked shortly afterward.
“You know, I wake up every day and thank God that I did. I go to bed every night praying I’m gonna wake up,” Rush added.
Rush died on Feb. 17, 2021. He was 70 years old.
